Peter Rogers, producer of the popular British "Carry On" films, has died. He was 95.

Rogers died Tuesday at his home in Gerrards Cross, northwest of London.

He produced all 31 of the innuendo-laden "Carry On" films, beginning with "Carry On Sergeant" in 1958 and including "Carry On Nurse" and "Carry On Doctor," which featured leering references to breasts and bottoms. He continued at Pinewood Studios until early this year.

He brought the "Carry On" humor to the stage in 1973 at the Victoria Palace with  "Carry On London!" which ran for 18 months.

Rogers' wife, film producer Betty Box, died in 1999. The couple had no children.
