Trivia

This is the only film that has both the Rank logo and the Anglo Amalgamated logo in the pre-credits. See more »

Goofs

Many, if not most, of the Glamcabs only have two doors, which would make them unsuitable as taxicabs. All scenes involving passengers only used the four-door cabs. See more »

Quotes

[after Charlie gives her a fur coat]

Charlie Hawkins: I'll say it is. Genuine mammoth, that is.
Peggy Hawkins: Oh, don't be silly, Charlie.

Dated but still better than some of the series.
22 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is an old fashioned "battle of the sexes" comedy where an unappreciated wife ( Hattie Jacques ) sets up a glamorous female-only taxi outfit in competition with the existing old-fashioned male-only taxi firm run by her workaholic husband ( Sidney James ). Of course the glamorous cabs win all the custom until the male cab business is on the rocks...

By no means the best of the series but still far far funnier than "Carry On Columbus" or "Carry On Behind" etc.
