Carry on Behind [1975] – Yet another great Carry On

I like all the carry on films and i have most of them other than this one particular. Savored looking at it quite a lot.

I adore carry on movies so does my ten yr previous but i have to say that this 1 was dare i say it slightly tedious. Possibly since sid james and hattie jacques were not in. It there are some funny times like the speaking chicken and the massive goofy pet dog. But on the complete it is not funny as other people, even the actors glimpse bored and weary in it. There are a lot of the carry on stars not in. It even so,r the caretaker (sorry forgot his name and the proprietor of the camp web page) both of those been in hundreds of carry on movies are on prime kind. This is not the most effective carry on film but it will whilst a way a unexciting sunday afternoon.

Very good to observe, like to see kenneth willliams so so funny. Elk summer months tends to make this entertaining far too.

An individual after accused carry on movies of staying racist as there were no black men and women in it, personally i assume that is just political correctness. I consider everyone would have a difficult time taking offence at carry on films. To me this was just one of the best with professor crump and vooshka. A person of my favorite lines,hitting it off is like possessing it off no. The glance of kenneth williams confront was so amusing.

Vintage carry on film a whole lot of the old gang moreover elke sommer.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Carry on laughing
  • Not one of the best
  • I love all the Carry On films and I have most

Extremely happy with dvd – and the assistance thank you.

One more carry on film that will keep you laughing all through. Good previous british setting and humour.

Quite humorous, and a great chortle. You can’t defeat a carry on film.

One of the funniest in my opinion.

  1. I think the fifties, sixties & seventies were decades made better because of this series, as they are just harmless fun, and very funny, in that belly laugh way, that only british can do best. Many foreign nations outside europe, would murder their own children to live in the first world. So who cares what they think.

    1. This is a funny carry on film. One of the few films in the series not written by talbot rothwell that still provides a lot of laughs. Having said that dave freeman’s script is basically a reworking of rothwell’s earlier carry on camping. Kenneth williams and guest star elle sommer are superb in this film, both really funny. Windsor davies does a decent job of what would previously been the sid james role, whilst peter butterworth is great comic value as always.

    This is very bad, only marginally better than camping, thanks chiefly to the absence of sid james. I regret i bought this misled by positive reviews.

      1. By 1975, the carry on “franchise” had run out of steam. The films got cheaper, and the humour got ruder. As wellas, most of the original stars had left the series or died. I hate carry on movies/films, i really do, and this is aspiss-poor as you can get for a movie. At the time (1975)the british film industry was at a very low point, in thesame year monty python made the holy grail, but hada very hard time finding money to produce it, and this pileof dog’s do-do comes out too. Didthis film make an impression 41 years later???. Did they make a successful musical out of it?.

    I think this is the best carry on film. Particularly loved the misunderstandings between kenneth williams and elke somers.

    This later entry into the series comes across as a rehash of carry on camping, only without the laughs and some of the regulars. Sure, it has its moments, and kenneth williams is never less than great fun; but the magic is missing. The great elke sommer is a delightful lead, and there are splendid turns from the likes of kenneth connor and bernard bresslaw. The in-form cast help raise this film to three stars. But beyond that, it is hugely disappointing and one of the weaker carry ons.

    I love carry on films so does my 10 year old but i have to say that this one was dare i say it slightly boring. Maybe because sid james and hattie jacques were not in. It there are some funny moments like the talking bird and the big goofy dog. But on the whole it is not funny as others, even the actors look bored and tired in it. There are a lot of the carry on stars not in. It however,r the caretaker (sorry forgot his name and the owner of the camp site) both been in loads of carry on films are on top form. This is not the best carry on film but it will while a way a boring sunday afternoon.

    Comes from the age of an innocent, gentler, much nicer britain before the twin curses of selfish materialism and the nasty witch-hunts of the dour and humourless political correctness which blight britain today. Begins with a hysterical scene where the pompous professor roland crump (kenneth williams) accidentally puts on a film of a stripper instead of the scheduled documentary in a lecture on prehistoric man. Crump is teamed up with the beautiful and funny professor anna vooshka (elke sommer) in leading a team of student archaeologists to uncover some ancient roman army camp ruins under a popular camping site peopled with an array of mismatched characters providing comedy of errors, filled with fun. Bernard bresslaw plays arthur upmore who’s holiday with his wife linda (patsy rolands) is rather burdened bu having to take along linda’s crotchety mother. Meanwhile butcher fred ramsden (windsor davies) and electrician ernie bragg (jack douglas arrive for a fishing expedition while there wives are away at a health spar. They soon try to bed (with hilarious consequences two extremely sexy young ladies carol (sherrie hewson) and sandra (carol hawkins) on a camping trip. Added to the mix is the bumbling manager of the campsite major leaf (kenneth connor) and oddjob man henry barnes (peter butterworth) another wonderful, uproariously funny installment in this much loved british comedy series , will have you in stitches with its constant witty sexual innuendo , hilarious antics and continual mishaps.

    Funny – elke sommer very funny in a understated sort of a way.

    Very funny, and a good laugh. You can’t beat a carry on film.
      1. Carry on behind is, in my opinion, one of the worst of the carry on films. It was released during the decline of the series in the 70s and is not a patch on most of their other output. It is, basically, a caravan version of carry on camping and has a very similar plot. Most of the regulars are missing from this effort, though jack douglas has a bigger part than usual and the absence of sid james is especially noticeable. It was also written by someone called dave freeman, whoever he might be. I have never liked this film very much and i rarely watch it. I cannot recommend it to anyone, apart from carry on completists, because it is very below average. Two stars from me, for one of the very worst of the carry ons. Skip this one, you won’t be missing much.

    It’s a retread of carry on camping only with caravans as the usual array of characters are ripe for fun picking innuendo laden shenanigans. Plot for what it’s worth has a bunch of carry on holidaymakers caravanning next to a roman excavation site being run by prof anna vrooshka (elke sommer) and prof. Roland crump (kenneth williams). The absence of sid james, charles hawtrey, hattie jacques and terry scott was always going to be felt (they had all left the franchise by this time), but williams, bernard bresslaw , kenneth connor, joan simms and peter butterworth plough on stoically with the thin formulaic screenplay. Windsor davis supplements them but he’s no sid james. The series would trundle out two more films in the 70s before the ill advised comeback movie in 1992 (carry on columbus), one of which was the dreadful carry on england. “behind” isn’t an awful movie as it does have its moments, such as the by-play between sommer and williams, and bresslaw’s henpecked husband act. It’s also a very good snapshot of the era with budget holidays pointing to the unsteady political climate, while the sexual aspects reek of a time well left behind – but those attitudes did exist back then. Passable carry on fare but carrying with it the sadness in knowing the series was long past its sell by date.
