    I'm a big fan of British comedy & films but I've only been able to see one "Carry On" film in my lifetime (I think it was either "Carry on Doctor" or "Carry on Again Doctor"). Regretably, they just aren't shown here on American television. I recently purchased a multi-region player so I am now able to buy almost all of the "Carry On" films on DVD (12 of these are being released by Anchor Bay here in the states later this year).

    I was wondering if anyone is a fan of these films and might be able to mention which of the films they like best. Also, if anyone owns any of the region 2 DVDs, how the DVDs are. Carry on posting!

    I loved some of these films! I remember watching a number of them when I was younger, and would dearly love to see them out on R1 discs.

    The one scene I remember the most vividly was when they gang was being held seige in a mediterainian fortress, and they devised mortors out of coconut shells and a goot cricket bat. I think it was Follow that Camel!

    Carry onDoctor, and Nurse were a favorites of mine as well.

    Carry on Cleo & Carry on up the Kyhber are my two personal favourites.

    I believe that I've seen every one of them except Carry On Emmanuelle and the final film, Carry On Columbus.
    As for a favorite, I'd probably pick Carry On Screaming
