British tv and cinema have lost another female icon this week, with the sad news of the death of Fenella Fielding. Her film credits were less than you might have thought, perhaps the result of what she saw as being typecast after appearances in 1960s comedies. That may be right, but if you're going to be best remembered for a Carry On classic, then Fenella's Valeria Watt in Carry On Screaming would be hard to beat. Unfortunately, as far as we know that was the only film in which her billing was high enough to warrant appearing on the main posters.
