The Carry On comedy team takes on all those sagas of the British Navy from the Napoleonic Era with Carry On Jack. The title comes from what they used to call British sailors, Jack Tars.

Midshipman Albert Poopdecker played by Bernard Cribbins is little thrown out of sea school just to make room and given his first assignment on the HMS Venus a frigate ship of the line. But on his way there Cribbins is waylaid in a cat house where one of the girls played by Juliet Mills steals his uniform and credentials. To make matters worse a press gang comes along and takes Cribbins and Charles Hawtrey.

The HMS Venus has a Regency fop for a captain in Kenneth Williams and a first officer in Donald Houston who'd like to take his place. And Juliet Mills on board playing a midshipman named Albert Poopdecker. Her breasts are just super spectacular man boobs if she'd let the crew see them and confirm their beliefs.

In the end after surviving a mutiny, a capture by pirates and saving the United Kingdom from invasion, Hawtrey, Cribbins, Mills, and Williams, are national heroes.

But it's how they do it that provides loads of laughs in this Carry On classic.
