Carry On Spying One of the more consistently amusing “Carry On” movies, “Carry On Spying” drops the gang squarely in the world of James Bond a world they immediately proceed to turn on its ear.
Noteworthy as the “Carry On” debut of series regular Barbara Windsor, playing a secret agent trainee who makes great use of her perky sexuality (a typical attribute of Windsor’s characters) and her intelligence.
The other series regulars (Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, etc.) are at the top of their game. Among the supporting players, Judith Furse is a standout as the intimidating evil mastermind Dr. Crow. Playing the role straight-faced, Furse’s sinister, man-like villainess would fit right into a genuine Bond film.
Highly recommended to fans of the series, and a good starting point for those who’ve never seen a “Carry On” before.
