The Carry On Girls

By Gemma and Robert Ross
Forward By Valerie Leon

Celebrating the women who shaped British Comedy.

Whether it is the seaside postcard bubbly blondes of Barbara Windsor, or the hysterically historical leading ladies of Joan Sims; the coquettish authoritarians of Hattie Jacques, or the statuesque confidence of Valerie Leon; the Carry On Girls are stoic, sexy, and fiercely independent.

In this lavish celebration of a pioneering generation of comedy actresses who continue to radiate charm and contemporary relevance, a few home truths are revealed, some myths are debunked, but above all some of the best-loved icons of British entertainment are given fitting affection and respect.
