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!

Did You Know?


The film marked a slightly more risqué treatment of the topic with more nudity and openly sexual jokes than previous films. Discreet cuts by the BBFC (mainly to saucy dialogue and the hotel fight sequence between bikini-clad contestants played by Barbara Windsor and Margaret Nolan) enabled the film to gain the more commercially acceptable A certificate (open to families) than the more restrictive AA certificate, barring entry to the under-fourteens.


Susan Brooks: Are we all right for Fircombe?
Peter Potter: I'm sure you are!
Paula Perkins: I'm beginning to see why you don't want me down there.


When Connie Philpotts says, "You lecherous so and so," her lips do not move.

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.
