Carry on Again Christmas (ITV 1970, Sid James, Terry Scott)

Published

on


The second of the four Carry On Christmas specials, broadcast Christmas Eve 1970, this one loosely recounts the story of Treasure Island with Sid James as Long John Silver and Barbara Windsor, as Jim Hawkins. The writing never quite builds up any steam, and many of the jokes were recycled from previous films.
