Carry on Behind Professors Vooshka and Crump decide to visit an archaeological site to study the artifacts there. Lo and behold, it’s right next to a caravan site where all manner of people are staying. With a randy Major owning the site, a snobbish mother, and the two professors’ constant innuendos, the film ends with a sinking caravan site and a striptease performance as a replacement for the cabaret night.
A final jolly holiday with the team
A number of the Carry On stars are missing from this film but there are enough regulars to keep the action at a lively pace. The film belongs to Kenneth Williams and international guest star Elke Sommer as the archaeologists, with Sommer’s fractured English providing most of the best one-liners.
The remaining regulars, including Kenneth Connor, Joan Sims and Bernard Bresslaw are restricted to supporting roles but never fail to give first class performances, including Connor as a randy major who owns the site, Sims as the mother-in-law from hell and Bresslaw as her long-suffering son-in-law.
All in all, a final jolly holiday with the team.
Underrated Carry On which is immense fun!
In the Carry On canon, this film is severely overlooked and considered by some to be a poor version of ‘Camping’, but there are many great moments which always raise a laugh with me. Mainly those concerning the antics of Kenneth Williams and Elke Sommer as his randy Russian accomplice Anna Vooshka.
After this, the Carry On’s took a downward spiral, ending with Columbus but as a last great helping of saucy fun, this one works!! Kenneth Williams is on top form and despite the lack of Sid, Babs, etc this films has plenty of great cast members including Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Peter Butterworth, Kenneth Connor, Jack Douglas and Windsor Davies.
