Trivia:
During the filming, Charles Hawtrey's mother would often visit the set. While enjoying a cigarette, she accidentally dropped lit ash from the cigarette into her handbag. Joan Sims who was the first to spot the incident yelled, "Charlie Charlie, your mother's bag is on fire!". Charles Hawtrey poured his cup of tea into the bag, snapped it shut, and carried on.See more »
Quotes:
Michael Bean:My beautiful, wrecked, piano!
Edwin Milton:Does that mean you won't be able to finish composing the music for the play?
Michael Bean:Real composers don't require pianos, it is all in the mind.
Edwin Milton:Best place for it.
Michael Bean:Never wanted my music, have you?
Edwin Milton:Well, Tchaikovsky would have done me, if I'd *had* to have music at all. Personally...
Michael Bean:Out with it, what's your objection? Come on, let's have all of it, come on let's have it!
Edwin Milton:All right it's already my Herculian task to coax anything like audability from these children. If, in addition, I have to cope with an orchestra that makes a lullaby sound like the climax to 1812...

Fun and games at school with the Carry On team, 25 April 2006
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

Carry On Teacher is one of the earlier entries in the Carry On series and I found this quite funny.

The Headmaster at Maudin Street School plans to apply for another job at another school. As the students like him, they don't want him to leave. They decide to play some practical jokes just as school inspectors are about. They put chewing gum and super glue on chairs, saw a piano leg and make it collapse and launch an experimental rocket. Through all of this, two of the teachers fall in love with each other.

This sort of thing never happened when I was at school when the headmaster left!

The cast includes some of the Carry On regulars including Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, Kenneth Conner and Leslie Phillips. With Ted Ray as the Headmaster.

Have a good laugh with Carry On Teacher. Excellent.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
