You are a very mean and disgusting shabby bloke! ’ Location: Windsor, Berks. Review: Another plotless film, although at least this time it makes a feature of it with a series of 20 (count them) sketches involving various members of the team. Some of them work – Kenneth Williams’ charming interlude with Yoki the chimp or Joan Sims getting sloshed at a posh wine-tasting party – while others are unfunny to begin with and quickly outstay their welcome, in particular the Thirty Nine Steps spoof or the antics at the Ideal Home Exhibition.

Location: Queen’s Barracks, Stoughton, Surrey. Review: This is probably the only Carry On film that contains incidents that might, just possibly, have happened in real life. Based loosely on army stories by novelist RF Delderfield, Sergeant is a taut, efficiently made comic drama with sterling performances by all the cast. William Hartnell, fresh from Granada sitcom The Army Game, is the tyrannical sergeant with a heart of gold, Eric Barker the bumbling captain, Bob Monkhouse the lovelorn new recruit, Kenneth Connor the nervous hypochondriac, Charles Hawtrey the comic relief etc.
