Carry On Henry (1971) **

The only perfect marriage of historical parody trappings and authentic seventies vintage Carry On humour, this is an unqualified success because it’s the Carry On team pretending to be historical figures, not historical figures being played by the Carry On team. The jokes are all modern, and either don’t fit the time and that’s the joke in itself, or else just don’t fit the time and nobody cares. Everything feels right.
