Does anyone know why it was deemed necessary by the makers of "Carry On Girls'' (1973) to overdub actress Valerie Leon's voice (played Paula Perkin) with that of co- star June Whitfield throughout the film?
Did they feel a prim and proper voice was needed for Valerie's character?
If so why didn't they just recast June Whitfield as Paula Perkin?
Or did they deem June not attractive enough to play that part?
June's a lovely lady anyway and I wouldn't have minded seeing her in a bikini.
Couldn't Valerie Leon do a voice change?
The whole thing seems very weird.There can't be many actors/actresses that have had their voices overdubbed for the duration of a film.
