Chic Murray

  1. Sidney James, Carry On Constable, 1959.        BBComic Ted Ray (his radio show was called, of course, Ray’s A Laugh) (and he did!), was the headmaster in the previous Carry On Teacher, despite being under contract to (but never used by) Associated British. The ABC suits made their fury known and rather than risk being refused a release in their cinemas, the Carry On team swiftly dropped Ray from the series. Scots comic Murray passed and so another beloved radio celebrity, Sid James, made the first of his 19 carrying ons.
