Fantastic post! But I'm not surprised Barbara Windsor was having it off with old Sid. I mean, working on all those Carry Ons, how much opportunity would she have had for on-set romance, I ask you, with Charles Hawtrey or Kenneth Williams?

You know, I'm sure I've seen Carry on Camping since the Harry Potter phenomenon took flight, and I never picked up on that as a posible source (admittedly the term 'muggles' remained unknown to me until somewhat recently). Too bad Hawtrey isn't alive to appear in the final Harry Potter epic . . . 'Carry on, Harry'?? . . . as the now-elderly kid wizard. Woulda been a neat close to the series.

Windsor was also a gangster's moll.

There was a UK made-for-TV movie about Sid and Barbara. I can't imagine it's very good, but I haven't seen it.

For some reason, CTV used to show this at least once a year as a late movie, and adolescents nation-wide would stay up after bedtime for a furtive glance at a nice pair of bristols.
