| Carry On Capitan Matarrana.
Seeing a Comedy movies and Cinema of Spain viewing challenges taking place on ICM at the same time,I decided to go in search and find if there is a "Adult" Comedy from Spain. Knowing him for the outstanding Gothic Horror The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman (1971-also reviewed),I was surprised to find a title in the genre, starring Daninsky himself.

Note:Some spoilers in review.

View on the film:

Marching into the new army recruits training facilities for his lone non-TV Special/Doc, co-writer/(with Francesc Bellmunt/Juanjo Puigcorbe and Miguel Sanz) director Joan Minguell & cinematographer Tomas Pladevall are surprisingly shy in letting the ladies get involved in the action, with Minguell instead grabbing gags of the recruits regularly getting undressed and being inspected. Escaping from the facilities to cross the river to a naked colony, Minguell wheels out the hi-jinks in long criss-crossing pans between the lads swimming to freedom, and Matarrana trying to fish them out.

Joining this army in the early days of what would become over 100 credits,Victoria Abril gives a perky turn as Violeta, with Abril capturing Violeta merry cheekiness over catching the eyes of all the lads when she gets naked, and a eagerness to help them all escape Matarrana. Stamping round like a hot-headed Sgt. Slaughter, Paul Naschy delivers with relish the puffed-up Matarrana barking orders at the new recruits.
