Charles Hawtrey

1. – Lance Percival, Carry On Cruising, 1962. A silly billing dispute lost Hawtrey the first Carry On in colour. Between 1958-72, he made 23 Carry Ons, quitting after another billing battle in the 1972 Carry On Christmas TV show. His aged mother often visited the shooting. During Carry On Teacher, 1959, Joan Sims noticed the old lady had dropped lighted cigarette into her bag. Then, in a scene worthy of the series, Sims yelled at Hawtrey. And he calmly poured his cup of tea into the handbag, snapped it shut and… carried on filming. Same film, different titles.
