Review:

If you are a fan of the Cock Inn - this is a must for you! --Robin Askwith (Carry On Girls)

This has been a wonderful time for me to read this book. It is a joy to read. It brought back a pile of happy memories of my life in the 'Carry On Pictures'. Good luck with the sales of the book. --Jack Douglas (Appeared in eight Carry On Films)

A great collection of questions, fun for all the family. The Carry On films are great for all the family to watch together, I was in the first Carry On film in 1958, the producers actually used my hotel in two of the films, I would have been in more Carry On films but I loved the theatre. I thought Joan Sims, Barbara Windsor, Bob Monkhouse and Frankie Howerd were very good actors. --Dora Bryan OBE (Carry On Sergeant)
