[an error occurred while processing this directive]Washington, (ANI): Veteran actor Jack Douglas, who died in December last year, has left a meagre 21,000 dollars for his family. Known for his recurring role in the classic 'Carry On" comedy film franchise, the actor lost his battle with pneumonia, and died aged 81.

According to Contactmusic, despite his high profile work in eight 'Carry On" movies, as well as appearances in British TV comedies like 'The Goodies" and 'The Benny Hill Show", the star was left with very little money to pass on to his relatives by the time his will was executed this year.

All through his lifetime, Douglas used to complain of the low pay he received during his time as a 'Carry On" actor. He even claimed that he never got any royalties from repeat TV screenings.
