Angela Douglas/ Jacki Piper: Carry On Girls

November 5, 2010

Talent…

.

… These are the lovely ladies and gorgeous girls of eras gone by whose beauty, ability, electricity and all-round x-appeal deserve celebration and – ahem – salivation here at George’s Journal…

~~~

Carry On Girls, indeed! Although neither of them starred in that particular flick of the long-running, much-loved, saucily super British comedy film series, both Angela Douglas and Jacki Piper appeared in their fair share. Yet, unlike Babs Windsor and so many of the other lovelies primarily employed for their – often – ample assets, both Angela and Jacki’s roles were tailor-made for their classy, beautiful, but undeniably comedic talents – in fact, Jacki stepped on to the Carry On bandwagon as Angela’s 1970s replacement. More English roses than Carry On crumpet then? Well, why not take a look at the pics and decide for yourself – nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more…

Profiles

Names: Angela Douglas (real name: Angela Josephine McDonagh ~ nickname: ‘Shrimp’)/ Jacki Piper (real name: Jacqueline Barrell, née Crump)

Nationalities: English

Professions: Actresses

Born: Angela – 29 October 1940, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire/ Jacki – 3 August 1948, Birmingham, West Midlands

Known for: Playing major and supporting roles in, between them, eight different Carry On films – Angela: Carry On Screaming (1965), Carry On Cowboy (1966), (Carry On) Follow That Camel (1967) and Carry On Up The Khyber (1968); Jacki: Carry On Up The Jungle (1970), Carry On Loving (1970), Carry On At Your Convenience (1971) and Carry On Matron (1972). Angela has also starred in episodes of Doctor Who, The Saint, The Avengers and The Protectors, and in the films Digby, The Biggest Dog In The World (1973) and Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Hamlet (1996). Jacki has appeared in episodes of Z Cars, The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin and The Two Ronnies, as well as the Roger Moore thriller The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970).

Strange but true: Angela had an affair with and in 1968 married renowned actor and star of Reach For The Sky (1956) Kenneth More – indeed, he left his wife for her; Jacki’s original surname ‘Crump’ was ditched for her stage-name because it wasn’t considered sophisticated enough for theatres… in the North of England.

Peak of fitness: Angela – scrubbing up in the tub as Sid James’ Rumpo Kid walks in on her in Carry On Cowboy; Jacki – spending many of her scenes in Carry On At Your Convenience in a memorable pair of rather fetching shorts.
