Set in Haven Hospital where a certain men's ward is causing more havoc than the whole hospital put together. The formidable Matron's debut gives the patients a chill every time she walks past, with only Reckitt standing up to her. There's a colonel who is a constant nuisance, a bumbling nurse, a romance between Ted York and Nurse Denton, and Bell who wants his bunion removed straight away, so after drinking alcohol, the men decide to remove the bunion themselves!

"Carry On" regular actor Bernard Bresslaw was not cast in this film but his legs and feet did make an appearance during the scene where Ted York (Terence Longdon) is having a bath being bathed by Joan Sims. The legs of Longdon were thought to be too thin so Bresslaw acted as a body double for them. See more »
When the nurse is discovered hidden in the bed, she runs up the stairs in her underwear - but when she next appears both her petticoat and hairstyle are different. See more »
Come come, Matron. Surely you've seen a temperature taken like this before?
Yes Colonel. But never with a daffodil!

Carry On Nurse was the second of the Carry On movies and also the first of the medical ones.
This one is about life in a ward in Haven Hospital. The patients include a boxer, nuclear scientist and a Major. We get to see one of them snogging a nurse, the Major always calling for help and, best of all, the patients trying to do a bunion operation while breathing in laughing gas! There is also an accident prone nurse to add to the chaos.
I find this to be one of the funnier Carry Ons and is shot well in black and white.
Now to the cast, which includes plenty of well known stars joining the regulars: Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jaques, Kenneth Conner, Charles Hawtrey, Leslie Phillips and the Carry On debuts of Joan Sims and June Whitfield. With Bond girl Shirley Eaton (before she was painted gold in Goldfinger), Bill Owen (Compo from Last Of the Sumer Wine), Norman Rossington, Joan Hickson (Miss Marple), Susan Shaw, Jill Ireland (Charles Bronson's wife) and Wilfred Hyde-White as the Major.
Have a good laugh with Carry On Nurse. Great fun.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
