Trivia

As with many "Carry On" films the movie was cut by the BBFC for an 'A' (now PG) certificate. This included the removal of double entendre dialogue lines, including "backward people", "ants in his pants", and referrals to mutes as "having them cut out". Also cut was a shot of Mark Antony (Sidney James) wriggling his legs on top of Cleopatra (Amanda Barrie) and a scene showing the exhausted Antony staggering from her bedroom. Although the latter scene was restored the rest of the cuts still apply to all releases of the film. See more »

Goofs

Calpurnia's father in the film is named Seneca. Her father was really Piso. See more »

Best Anglo Carry On
9 November 1998 | by (London/Bridgwater-Somerset) – See all my reviews

This has to be the best of the earlier (Anglo) carry ons. There are many great moments to this film, with all the team except Hattie Jaques and Barbera Windsor. As usual it is Williams who shines through (as Caeser), but all the team put in top performances, notably Connor (as Hengis). With such lines as "Infamy, infamy , Oh they've all got it in for-me" I say it again Williams is the STAR. We start off in England during a typical summer (RAIN), where Hengis and Horsa are going about their lives (making square wheels and thus inventing the Window Frame) They are captured by the Romans and taken to Rome to be sold as slaves. Eventually Hengis ends up as Caeser's body guard who swaps roles with Caeser to meet Cleopatra. There is simply FUN FUN and more FUN to be had throughout.
