Speedee Taxis is a great success, which means its workaholic owner Charlie starts neglecting Peggy, his wife. Suddenly a fleet of rival taxis appears from nowhere and start pinching all the fares. The rivals are Glamcabs, and they have a secret weapon. All their drivers are very attractive women! Who's behind Glamcabs? It's open warfare and only one fleet can survive! Written by Simon N. McIntosh-Smith <Simon.N.Smith@cs.cf.ac.uk>

Competent Saturday afternoon filler
9 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Most of the usual crew including Hattie Jacques and Sidney James star in this early black and white Carry On film. Sidney runs a cab business when his wife decides to run a rival cab business ("Glam Cabs" - "I'm Free") with a fleet of bright, shiny, perky new units (the cars are new and all).

Rather than waiting a few weeks for the gearboxes of the Mark I Cortinas to disintegrate, Sidney attempts to foil the opposition with a series of hopeless plans.

Wisely, the producers decided to use the lovely old Model 10s for the more challenging scenes.

Product placements – Firestone tyres, Ford, Daily Express and Woodbines (cigarettes).
