Carry On Screaming – 1966
In Tribute To Fenella Fielding, 1927 – 2018
The Carry On franchise was continuing to churn out material as we reach the twelfth installment in the hugely successful series.
A parody of the popular Hammer Horror films, the plot was said to have vaguely followed a 1953 film – House of Wax.
It was the longest duration at 98 minutes of any of the series, it was also the last to be distributed by Anglo Amalgamated Film Distributors Ltd, before distribution passed to Rank.
Sid James had originally been cast in the lead role, but due to health problems (he was recovering from a heart attack), the lead was passed to Harry H. Corbett.
The sinister Dr Watt is kidnapping beautiful young women and turning them into mannequins to sell to local stores. When the Police investigate Dr Watt, has nothing to worry about Detective-Sergeant Bung is on the case, he’s clueless!
