See a P. Knutt stand.
13 April 2008 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

One of the better entries in this series, thanks mostly to the broader genre fittings and fixtures as opposed to the usual saucy one-liners. We have the usual Western tale of a town being taken over by a bad guy (The Rumpo Kid played by Sid James) and a new Marshall (Jim Dale as Marshall P. Knutt) being sent into town to clean up the joint. Sadly, Dale is actually a sanitation engineer with the forename Marshall and has only been sent to the town by mistake, as anyone who had seen his shooting skills would know. Never mind, a man's still gotta do what a man's gotta do and things are brewing for a shoot-out at high noon.

The usual suspects are all here (James, Williams, Sims, Hawtrey and Jim Dale get the main parts) and the nice thing about this entry into the series is that a few of the actors seem to be genuinely acting like someone other than themselves for a change (especially Kenneth Williams, who gives the best performance overall) and the Western staples, such as the brassy "tart with a heart", the eager and sneaky coffin-maker and the bullied townsfolk, add to the fun. The Carry On team didn't skirt this close, and this accurately, to their source material ever again with the exception of Carry On Screaming (another favourite of mine and, funnily enough, released in the same year).

A very enjoyable outing from the team and one that should be a favourite amongst the fans.
