Still worth a chuckle
1 April 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I think this was one of the funniest carry on films,it would have to be some where in the top 10.The story is based on Beau Geste,with quite a few changes.Phil Silvers seems relaxed in his role,almost as if he has starred in other carry on films,he was probably the replacement for Sid James.Although Phil Silvers fits the role perfectly,in his usual SGT Bilko style.Anita Harris only starred in two carry on films,and you wonder why she wasn't asked to do more,as she was popular with the male audiences.All the characters are very good,and the best use has been made of their talents.Kenneth Williams playing the German called Burger,Charles Hawtrey playing the Frenchman Le piece.Bernard Bresslaw gives his best carry on performance as the Arab leader.I think one of the funniest parts of this film is when the Legionaires are having a sandcastle competition,and it breaks into a fight,and the Arabs are looking on thinking their all stupid.In all still a funny film,with a good cast who sadly most are not with us anymore.
