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.

Charming Carry On
24 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite Carry Ons, despite not being one of the funniest, possibly because this is Hattie Jacques' largest role. Hattie brings a believable element of pathos to the film, something not normally associated with the Carry Ons.

This was the first Carry On that Eric Rogers led the production of the musical score. He was the composer for most of the colour Carry On films, and his music (bells, whistles and kettle drums) became an invaluable asset.

For some reason I just love the line when Charles Hawtrey is introducing himself. 'My friends call me Pint Pot' he says. 'Are you sure it's "pint" pot?' asks Kenneth Connor.
