What do you like the most about films - I like to see life in 2D and - usually- in black and white! ;-)

Why did you choose the topic for #MTOS - I've been a lifelong fan of the Carry Ons, written several books on them including "The Carry On Companion" (1996) and "The Carry on Story" (2005), as well as moderated 30 full-length audio commentaries with the cast and crew.
