1Talking about fellow 'Carry On...' actor Sidney James: He would always call me Lizzle - that was his nickname for me - we'd always have a cuddle. He never once tried anything obscene or nasty or intrusive. There was a play that was at the National several years ago where they made him out to be an absolute horrible lech. And I was very upset and so was his wife.
2Talking of British film director John Boulting:... I thought John was wonderful. He was a great director. He was a perfectionist. The sock darning scene in I'm All Right Jack (1959) with Terry-Thomas and Peter Sellers took 72 takes.
3[on the Carry-On films] "You could insinuate a sexual scene but there was nothing ever in it ... There was never anything crude or horrible."
