Terry-Thomas' Bedouin lifestyle doesn't please wife Janette Scott
Terry-Thomas plays a writer whose editor sends him off on adventures to inspire his books. An effort about his experience of being lost in the desert and adopted by a Bedouin tribe is rejected, however, but not before he's adopted the lifestyle - and the dress - of the tribe; much to the distaste of his wife (Janette Scott). The couple end up splitting their home and their responsibilities in halves which leads to comic situations that, despite an excellent supporting cast that includes several 'Carry On' regulars, never quite manages to achieve the levels one might hope for. Not at all bad, but leaves a distinct feeling that it should have been better.
