| The first and best.
Carry on Sergeant is not what I would regard as authentic of National Service life, but it is a very funny film, with some romantic additions to make up the story. I thought that the best performance was that of Kenneth Connor, who thought he had everything wrong with him,but was really in great shape. Hattie Jacques played a great part as the Matron who was trying to convince him of this. People who have done National Service would enjoy the film more than those who have not, but it is a good laugh for anyone. Interesting contributions from Dora Bryan and Shirley Eaton, also Eric Barker looked the part as the Commissioned Officer. There were interesting contributions from Gerald Campion, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtry and William Hartnell, who made a good Sergeant, also from Bill Owen as the Corporal. Look out for Bob Monkhouse putting the Bren gun together. I liked the scene near the beginning when Grimshawe meets his Platoon, and Private Bailey tells him to be quiet whilst lying on his bed reading. The recruits certainly started off well,spending their first evening in the naafi,having a pint of beer! That's the way to do it!
