Carry on Spying

In the sixties Canadian teenagers enjoyed a variety of British B movies from Hammer horror to the comedies of the Carry On gang. The Carry On films were remarkably unfunny, but like the Hammer films they always featured women with massive mammaries in various stages of undress, which explained the mainly teenage audience.
In the sixties spy mania took over the world, in books, films, comics, television and newspaper supplement fiction.
Carry on Spying was released in July of 1964 and starred Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Eric Barker and Barbara Windsor. The story began with the theft of a secret formula by an agent of Doctor Crow, head of STENCH (Society for the Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans.) Hot on the heels of the villains came the bumbling British secret agents of the Carry On gang.
