Contains the best gag in *any* Carry On film...
Although this film is not the strongest in the series, it does contain the best gag (in my opinion) of any of the films - a devilish one liner from Councillor Fiddler concerning Fircombe's annual rainfall.

Bresslaw is inspired as the cross dressing Peter/Paula Potter in a time of much lower political sensitivity.

Harmless postcard humour - enjoy it!

Quotes

Sid Fiddler: Connie, have you got a room for this young lady please?
Connie Philpotts: Well, of course, Sidney!
Connie Philpotts: I think you'll find this an ideal one.
Sid Fiddler: Thank you, Connie. Hey, just a minute, that's for the broom cupboard.
Connie Philpotts: That's right: where we keep all the scrubbers!
Sid Fiddler: All right, ...


Goofs

When Miss Brakes pulls the Mayor's trousers down, she pulls them down with both hands. She then puts her left hand to her mouth in shock. In the next wide angle shot she is seen putting her right hand to her mouth and her left hand is on the Mayor's trousers.


Crazy Credits

The opening credits feature cartoon representations of beauty pageant entrants with puns for titles: Miss Conduct, Miss Represent, Miss Conception, Miss Hap, Miss Fortune, Miss Used, Miss Shaped, Miss Trust, Miss Handled, Miss Manage, Miss Placed, Miss Spent, Miss Stake, Miss Demeanour, and Miss Adventure. Each "beauty queen" is depicted in a manner befitting their name, for example Miss Conduct is behaving inappropriately with a judge, Miss Conception is pregnant, Miss Hap and Miss Fortune suffer wardrobe malfunctions, and so on.


Alternate Versions

As with many of the Carry On films the cinema version was cut by the BBFC to receive an 'A' (PG) certificate. Some dialogue was replaced, including 'knee trembler' (which was changed to 'snogging') and the fight between Hope and Dawn was reduced to remove shots of Hope attempting to pull Dawn's underwear off. The latter scene was fully restored in later video/DVD releases.
