Trivia

The movie spoofed the Ian Fleming spy and criminal organization acronym, such as SMERSH and SPECTRE from the James Bond films, and UNCLE from the movies and TV series. These acronym spoofs in this picture were BOSH, SNOG, SMUT and STENCH. Their meanings are as follows: BOSH: The British Operational Security Headquarters; SNOG: The Society for the Neutralisation of Germs; SMUT: The Society for the Monopoly of Universal Technology and STENCH: The Society for Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans.

The great Barbara Windsor
16 September 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funnier efforts by the team. Its obviously a send up of other movies of the genre and is shot in glorious black and white which sometimes I prefer. Black and white seems to suit the carry on movies. Life may indeed be in colour but these movies were never a depiction of life. The campery of Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtrey is as funny as ever. There are those two wonderfully reliable old British actors Eric Barker and the fabulous Richard Wattis as his assistant. It would be hard to find better actors to play the chief and his off sider. I loved the performance of Judith Furse.. hilariously butch.Bernard Cribbins is a great talent and he brings so much more to the series than the annoying Kenneth Connor did. This might have been the first with the great Barbara Windsor and what a spectacular career she had. She actually steals the film and I found myself roaring with laughter. Its a very good carry on but above all the introduction of one of Britains finest stars Magnificent Barbara Windsor. Barbara Windsor was much more than the sexy little bomb shell that added so much to these films and many others. She was a brilliant comedienne and I hope she gets the recognition she richly deserved. Her timing is brilliant.

Yes its all very corny but all great comedy is corny. Its rather fun seeing their idea of modern technology,those mobile phones are fun. Wonder what they would think of what we use today. I love the cheap effects of the movie such as the car wash, rather not explain but its hilarious. Its great fun seeing one of Australias most loved exports, John Bluthall in the early stages of a great career.
