period: Carry on Cleo

Carry on Cleo

One year after the epic with Elizabeth Taylor the ‘Carry on’ team released Carry on Cleo with Amanda Barrie as Cleopatra.

What can you say other than that it was a ‘Carry on’ movie recycling the same tired jokes: the best gag in the whole movie was Cleopatra’s bathing cap (taking the mick out of Elizabeth Taylor’s wig that looked remarkably like a swimming cap she had worn in a beach scene in Suddenly, Last Summer).

The makeup

Geoffrey Rodway was the makeup artist.
