|The Official Carry On Quiz Book
Chris Cowlin and Paul Burton
Norman Hudis and Jacki Piper
Brief Description: Who can forget the cheeky humour, outrageous characters and slapstick comedy that have characterised the ‘Carry On’ films over the last fifty years? Well, don’t lose your head if you discover that the 1,000 questions in this quiz book highlight a few holes in your memory and you end up in hospital screaming for the saucy nurse and ending up with the grumpy old matron!
Covering every aspect of the ‘Carry On’ genre – the movies, release dates, characters, the stars and their lives, debuts, and much more – this book will propel you on a whirlwind journey from the Wild West to the Khyber Pass and every conceivable location in between, hotfooting through a range of historical eras, and jumping between black-and-white and Technicolor worlds.
Even if you find you’re cruising on rough waters, carry on regardless, make the most of the entertainment facilities, delve into the treasure trove of facts and figures, and allow your fond recollections to turn your frowns into the smiles and giggles that encapsulate the ‘Carry On’ ethos.
