- Kenneth Connor's contract for Cleo included a clause that
ensured it would not disturb his very successful West End work in A Funny
Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum starring opposite Frankie Howerd.
- All the surviving Carry On members were asked to join
the production of Columbus but were to ill or in other productions. I think
Kenneth Connor said it best when he told them, "He wanted to be
remembered as a Carry On principal, not a bit-player".
- Kenneth's screen son that appears towards the end of
Nurse is in
fact his real son. He would only say his lines when promised sweets by
Gerald Thomas. He returns to the Carry Ons years later in England,
Behind and Dick.
- When Carry On Nurse became as big a hit as Carry On
Sergeant, Peter Rogers announced that the next four films would be Carry On
films. He decided to offer the Carry On team (Kenneth Connor, Leslie
Phillips, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Terence Longden, Joan Sims,
Charles Hawtrey and Bill Owen) a percentage of the takings, as opposed to a
fee, but they declined. Years Later whenever anyone complained about
the money he just reminded them of this fact.
