    I love the old British Comedy films from the fifties and early sixties, the Ealing comedies plus the Carry On films as well.

    Always liked the old original St Trinians films wiv George Cole as Flash Harry.

    Classic lines such as the eunuchs being 'completely cut off in the desert'

    ( Dunno if I spelled the eun.... word right )

    loved the St Trinians films (bit un-PC these days!) and the Carry on films - favourites: Up the Kyber and The Black Fingernail - does anyone remember the "Doctor" films? Dirk Bogart wasn't it? And that big fella - what was his name?
