The Friday Feeling - Sid and Friends

I can't think of a better person to represent that glorious 'Friday Feeling' than Sid James. The cheeky laugh, mischievous twinkle in the eyes, warm, lovable personality and pure zest for living act as an inspiration to us all to enjoy life to its fullest.  

To welcome the beginning of another weekend, here is a selection of joyous photographs featuring Sid having fun with his screen co-stars.

This truly stunning photograph of Sid and the gorgeous Sylvia Syms was taken during the filming of the classic Rogers & Thomas comedy The Big Job (1965), one of my personal favourite Sid James films.

A gentleman and a charmer, Sid certainly knew how to keep his female co-stars laughing! This glorious photo from the set of Carry On Henry (1971) captures perfectly the great real-life friendship which existed between Sid and Joan Sims.

While Sid and Joan were working on Carry On Up the Khyber in 1968, they were visited on the set by the great Dick Van Dyke, who was taking a break from filming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

I've always loved this magnificent publicity still of Sid and the lovely Angela Douglas from
Carry On Cowboy (1965). The Rumpo Kid was Sid's personal favourite Carry On role.

Another photograph taken during the making of Carry On Cowboy, this time capturing a wonderfully candid moment between the two leading figures of the Carry On world. It's refreshing to see Sid and Kenneth Williams sharing a laugh together.

 I have always maintained that it is the simple things in life from which we gain the most pleasure. For proof, look no further than this fantastic shot of Peter Butterworth, Sid and Terry Scott enjoying a crafty snack while filming the big screen version of Bless This House

Sid was a friend to all of his co-stars, no matter what their shape or size! Here he is joined by Tommy Steele and a lovely four-legged companion on the set of the 1959 musical comedy Tommy the Toreador.

There will be more Friday fun with Sid next week!
