Carry on films are famous around the world for their saucy one-liners and oh-so-British attitutde to sex. They turned a generation of actors into national institutions and made stars of Sid James and Barbara Windsor. Both homage and exposé, this is the inside story of the turbulent love affair between 'dirty old man' Sid and 'eternally bubbly blonde' Barbara. Behind the scenes, in leaky caravans and muddy film locations, these two british icons kept up a passionnate and stormy affair, to the varying dismay and amusement of their Carry on collegues.
