Carry On #27: Carry On Behind

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 19, 2019

Hey everybody! I’m back today with another Carry On review, this time exploring Carry On Behind (Gerald Thomas, 1975). Surprisingly, this film is not so much about behinds except for a few gags. Its particularity, however, resides in the fact that it was the first Carry On film since Carry On read more

A 2nd Sunshine Blogger Award for The Wonderful World of Cinema!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 10, 2019

Around two weeks ago, The Classic Movie Muse contacted me to let me know that she had nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award! Thank you!! What an honour! The Classic Movie Muse is a lovely blog I discovered quite recently when I was hosting the 5th Grace Kelly Blogathon. I’m sure many blog read more

Carry On #26: Carry On Dick

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 9, 2019

A few days ago, I watched what marked Talbot Rothwell’s last participation in the famous British comic Carry On franchise: Carry On Dick (Gerald Thomas, 1974). Before watching it, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I knew that the Carry Ons I had left to see were far from being the best. read more

Carry On #25: Carry On Girls

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 2, 2019

This blog series is taking much more time than I was expecting BUT, in a way, that’s a good thing because it will feel weird once it’s over! And, we’ve now reached the film #25 in our exploration of these saucy and hilarious films! Carry On Girls, directed by Gerald Thomas and rel read more

Carry On #24: Carry On Abroad

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 29, 2019

The 24th entry of the Carry On franchise, Carry On Abroad (Gerald Thomas, 1972), was a special one on many aspects. First, just like the previous entry, Carry On Matron, it features a good number of regulars. And these create a strong feeling of nostalgia. June Whitfield’s presence has such a read more

Carry On #23: Carry On Matron

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 24, 2019

If you say matron to someone that is now familiar with the Carry On series, the first person he or she will associate with that word would automatically be Hattie Jacques. Indeed, the actress has portrayed the role on several occasions during the series and, as Joan Sims said, she pretty much was p read more

Carry On #22: Carry On at Your Convenience

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 19, 2019

Welcome back to another review of the Carry On blog series! Today, I’ll be exploring Carry On at Your Convenience (Gerald Thomas, 1971). Curiously enough, Carry On at Your Convenience resulted into being the first Carry On film to actually lose money at the box office on its initial release. read more

Carry On #21: Carry On Henry

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 16, 2019

After taking a two-week break from writing about Carry On films, I’m back with Carry On #21: Carry On Henry (Gerald Thomas, 1971), which parodies the life of the notorious king of England, Henry VIII. Well, a “break” is not a good expression since, so far, I loved reviewing the va read more

Desert Island Discs: Grace Kelly, the Arts and Monaco

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 12, 2019

Three Enchanting Ladies Today, the enchanting Grace Kelly would have been 90 years old. It always makes me sad to think that she could still be with us. This brings many questionings, such as what would be her approach to the world now, how she would have continued to make Monaco an attractive plac read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 12, 2019

#Noirvember: The various Representations of Women in Film Noir

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 2, 2019

Hello dear readers! A few years ago, I wrote a text for university on the different representations of women in the film noir movement. I thought it would be fun to translate the text (because it was originally written in French) and share it here for #Noirvember! I hope you’ll enjoy it! Warni read more

Top of the World: More Films Recommendations for Halloween!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 31, 2019

Happy Halloween to all! Three years ago, I did a little top 20 of my favourite films to watch on October 31st. I thought it would be fun to do another list because I have discovered more films in the past three years. Instead of doing a top list, I’m going to present these films in chronologic read more

Carry On #20: Carry On Loving

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 30, 2019

We’ve already reached the 20th review for the Carry On blog series! Incredible! I must admit tho, that I didn’t hurry too much on watching Carry On Loving (Gerald Thomas, 1970). Aside from the fact that I had to work on school stuff, looking at some ratings on the films on the Internet, read more

Carry On #19: Carry On Up the Jungle

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 26, 2019

Even if Carry On Up the Jungle (Gerald Thomas, 1970) isn’t remembered as one of the best Carry Ons, I was looking forward to watching it as it marked the return of Kenneth Connor, now a huge favourite of mine, after an absence of six years. My reaction to Up the Jungle was similar to the one read more

Carry On #18: Carry On Again Doctor

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 24, 2019

Carry On Again Doctor is not a sequel to Carry On Camping as it features different characters, but if we regroup these two films with Carry On Nurse, it forms a trilogy within the Carry On series itself. We could call it the hospital trilogy. However, despite featuring different characters, one mig read more

Carry On #17: Carry On Camping

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 23, 2019

Before I go on with this article, I have to tell you this amusing life story.  I was on the bus earlier this evening to come back home and, I swear, I saw Charles Hawtrey’s doppelganger. Seriously, I wouldn’t have been surprised if he would have said: “Oh, helllllo!” That wa read more
