Top 10 Sid James Carry On Performances
April 26 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the death of the beloved Sid James. In honour, this week will be Celebrating Sid Week here on Sid's Place, with a number of special posts paying tribute to the great man.
10. Sergeant Frank Wilkins in Carry On Constable (1960)
9. Sid Carter in Carry On Matron (1972)
8. Vic Flange in Carry On Abroad (1972)
Arguably the last of the truly great films in the series and a perennial contender for the title of greatest ever Carry On. Sid is on rip-roaring form here and throws out terrific one-liners with an infectious zeal. His wonderful on-screen chemistry with Joan Sims has never been more evident than here, particularly in the magnificent scene towards the film's climax, where a drunken Sid crashes through the glass of the balcony door and Joan collapses in hysterics. Priceless.
7. Sir Rodney Ffing in Don't Lose Your Head (1966)
6. Sid Boggle in Carry On Camping (1969)
5. Charlie Hawkins in Carry On Cabby (1963)
