This made my day.

Mine too, when I found it.

Think 'Carry on, Anastasia'

Might have been a decent entry in the series. Sid James as General Sergei; Hattie Jacques as the Dowager Empress; dunno who Charles Hawtrey could've played, though.

The BBC aired readings of his diaries...you might be able to find them online at BBC Radio 7. Truly hilarious and sad at the same time.

Maybe I will get that multi-disc Carry On DVD box set I saw for $29.99 at a certain department store that shall remain nameless...

There's a few of those; one of which contains, I believe, every Carry On picture ever made. I must admit, I have a true weakness for double-entendre humor, late of the British empire, so if I had the coin I'd pick that one up.

I haven't read the Diaries, but everything I've heard about Williams suggests that he was a pretty messed up guy, brilliant as he could be (some of those Round the Horne broadcasts are unbelievable). Did they ever determine whether his death was accidental, or suicide?

Yeesh. These comedians . . .
