When they are released from prison they start out to collect the money they had stolen and which George had hidden in a hollow tree during the chase in which they were caught.

Goofs

In a scene where the robbers are climbing into the police station back yard, the ladder they are using does not reach the top of the wall. However, when they drop down on the other side, the top of the ladder is at least 2 feet above the wall. Similarly when George first spies the ladder against the girl's window, it reaches above the window ledge, but when the young man climbs it when the couple are eloping, it does not reach to the window.

A Carry On if ever I saw one.
11 May 2002 | by (Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

This film is made in the great tradition that is `Carry On`. The music shouts Carry On, as do the actors. maybe the movie could have been subtitled `Carry on Nicking`. Sid James as the centre for this production shows the Blueprint for his many performances as what was basically the same character throughout the Carry On series of movies whether it be Henry VIII or Sidney Bliss.
