Carry on Camping

While sticking to its well tried, profitable formula, latest Carry on suffers somewhat in comparison to some of its predecessors in that it lacks a storyline, however slim.

While sticking to its well tried, profitable formula, latest Carry on suffers somewhat in comparison to some of its predecessors in that it lacks a storyline, however slim.

Sidney James and Bernard Bresslaw (who make a good nonsense team) plan a vacation at a nudist holiday camp at which, they hope, they will be able to break down the prim resistance of their girl friends (Joan Sims and Dilys Laye). Camp turns out not to be nudie paradise, after all.

Meanwhile, other campers are involved in their own problems, with Terry Scott lumbered with an overhearty wife (Betty Marsden) and Charles Hawtrey as a cuckoo in a nest.

A bunch of schoolgirl teenagers from the St Chayste Ladies’ Seminary (typical of most of the dialog), chaperoned by prissy Kenneth Williams as the headmaster and Hattie Jacques as the formidable matron, descend on the camp to bring some sexy complications. They’re a goodlooking bunch, with Barbara Windsor a literal standout as an exuberant sex-mad young trollop.
