Speaker information

John J Johnston

A talk by John J Johnston on Carry on Cleo followed by a screening of an anarchic interpretation of a famous story from Ancient Egyptian history. Two Britons are sold as Roman slaves and end up in Egypt via Rome. They manage, accidentally, to overturn all Julius Caesar's and Mark Anthony's plans. It is one of the best examples of the Carry On comedies; illustrating the traditions of British music hall, bawdy humour and panto.
