Carry On Christmas

Sid James as Ebenezer Scrooge, natch, who stinted Dr. Frank N. Stein (his pal’s Dracula) last Christmas and caused a queer aberration, this year it’s Robert Browning (Frankie Howerd) not advanced for a trip to Venice with the Barrett daughter (Hattie Jacques) and dead as a doornail, next time it’s Cinderella (Barbara Windsor) and Scrooge her landlord, who gets the end of her fairy godmother’s wand and changes his ways none too effectively, he’s nicked for solicitation.

All done on television, if you please.
