Carry On Christmas

Even the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future take on a new significance when played by the Carry On team.

Further details

Everyone knows just how mean old Scrooge was. But not even Dickens could have anticipated what happened when Ebenezer kept Frank N. Stein and Dracula short of development money ... refused to lend Robert Browning the fare to take Elizabeth Barrett to Venice ... and evicted Cinderella from her basement kitchen.


This was the most-watched ITV programme in the whole of Christmas week 1969.
