As you were, sergeant
I have liked this movie since I was at least eight and that's been twelve years and still I like it. As a kid I liked most of the Carry On films but now have become browned off by the majority except for Sergeant. Sergeant is a heart-warming tale featuring William Hartnell -the first Doctor Who and with excellent bit roles such as in The Yangste Incident and his last platoon. It features some of the well known Carry On faces such as Terry Scott and Kenneth Connor who is my favourite in this one as Private Strong. Excellent lines that still make me laugh and scenes that do likewise. Also starring the late great legend that was Bob Monkhouse. This is in my opinion the greatest of the Carry On movies and right up there with comedies of the time such as Doctor in the House, Wrong Arm of the Law and The League of Gentlemen.

This golden girl REALLY got kissed!
I've heard of the Carry On series for some time but I had never seen it. I decided to start with the first movie. "Carry On Sergeant" is one of many comedies focusing on a collection of loopy new recruits on a military base and the crazy stuff that happens. It's slapstick humor but most of it is more subtle than we're used to in the 21st century. Low-key British humor, you could say. I enjoyed the movie.
And of course, I have to talk about some of the cast members. If the woman playing Mary looks familiar, it's because Shirley Eaton is best known as the woman painted gold in "Goldfinger". And then there's Charles Hawtrey, who plays lovable wimp Peter. You might recognize the name even if you can't place the face. The Beatles mentioned him in "Two of Us" ("I Dig a Pigmy" by Charles Hawtrey on the deaf aids).
Anyway, it's a funny movie. I suspect that they had fun filming it.
