Carry on Spying (Agent Oooh!) Reviews
Yes its all very corny but all great comedy is corny. Its rather fun seeing their idea of modern technology,those mobile phones are fun. Wonder what they would think of what we use today. I love the cheap effects of the movie such as the car wash, rather not explain but its hilarious. Its great fun seeing one of Australias most loved exports, John Bluthall in the early stages of a great career.
It sounds more fun that it actually came out to be.
The beginning of the movie and the last parts is pinnacle Carry On tradition, but in the middle the movie is just treading water. Sad, because parts of this is really good.
Pinewood studios is made up to look like post-war Vienna, colonial Algiers and other strange places. There's even som music resembling the one from "the Third man" for some not so strange reason.
A delight as always to watch Kenneth Williams who is young and wild here and here we also see Barbara Windsor for the first time inb the Carry On saga. Every scene of her is about those two things on the front of her in one way or another.
They have been a much-loved part of my life ever since I can remember.
