    Wasn't it made in 1975? Sid James' final film was Dick in 1974 - I think that he was concentrating on Bless This House at that point.

    Liz Fraser was in a few early Carry On movies but in some magazine interview she made a few
    remarks that did nt go down well with the powers that be at Carry on HQ and she got dropped

    Pity cos she was kind of perfect for that series.

    She did appear in Carry on Behind in 1975 so they must have forgiven her...
    but by then the Carry On series was running out of steam....

    Yes, many a toilet joke could be used in that one. "Let's get down to business" "on the factory floor" were great lines.

    I'm not a radical feminist but even I can see what's wrong there but I have to admit this was part of the way things were back then and stands to reason of how far we have come in caring for a women's dignity.

    Nice pants though! may go shopping later x

    My favourite is Carry On Again Doctor - I was delighted back in 1996 when I visited WHSmith in Leicester and found that they were selling that video under the Cinema Club brand for just 4.99.

    As I have said before, my favourite scene was when Jimmy Nookey (Jim Dale) fuses the x-ray machine and puts the hospital into chaos. And also the Valerie Leon character (Deirdre?) in his office as well - I almost ruined my video copy by pausing it on the "right moment" so many times to have a good look at what I wanted to see - if you know what I mean.
    George, you crack me up mate....happy birthday for thursday!

    I have always said that the Carry On films reaches its peak in 1968-1970.

    Carry On Camping (a double meaning word in comedy terms as we all know) was great as well - the opening scenes with Sid and co watching an X rated film at the cinema. Cue ice lolly dropped on lap etc. And Josh Fiddler (Peter Butterworth?) who charges them a pound to get in, a pound for rent, a pound for luck etc.

    As well as Sid James character wanting something from a shop (Valerie Leon or Gail Grainger as the shop assistant - most likely to be Leon), and is so embarrassed that Sid asks for "a tube of toothpaste", as if it was a late 1960s equivalent of a Mates condoms advert. "We don't sell toothpaste". "Aspirins?" etc. I know that Grainger was in Abroad - I don't need to be reminded of that!

    The hole in the changing room where Sid spies on Barbara Windsor's character, and Sid gets squirted with toothpaste in his eye for his troubles. And the pan of hot soup that Sid puts his feet in and almost boils them.

    My favourite has got to be Carry On Camping. The pinnacle of the Carry On Series. It's never been bettered. Even now me and my colleague at work keep saying quotes from this comedy classic mostly Josh Fiddler's 1 speech - per tent or per person. Whichever's the greater!
