The A - Z of Carry On Supporting Actors: E.V.H Emmett

This is the latest blog in a brand new series for Carry On Blogging. It might be slightly ambitious, but I'm going to attempt to do a run through the alphabet of some of the more interesting Carry On supporting actors. One of the reasons I set up this blog was to turn the spotlight on some of the lesser known Carry On actors who nevertheless played an important role in the success of the film series. 

Today we continue with the next letter in the alphabet, E and E is for E.V.H Emmett.

Carry On films: E.V.H Emmett provided the voice over throughout the classic Carry On Cleo in 1964.
Also appeared in: Among the other films he appeared in were Passport to Pimlico (1949), Spyport (1958) and Look at Life: Ticket to Tokyo in 1959.

Best known for: Aside from providing his vocal talents for a wide variety of British films, Emmett was best known as a British newsreader on radio and the official commentator for Gaumont documentary films.

Did you know: E.V.H Emmett was also a scriptwriter, working on films such as Dance Hall (1950), Under the Southern Cross (1957) and Bothered by a Beard (which he also produced and directed).


What are they up to now: Sadly not a lot. Emmett passed away at the age of 68 in June 1971.

Stay tuned for the next entry in my A - Z of Carry On Supporting Actors!
