Trying to keep it stiff - Carry On style., 5 May 2004
Author: na071 from Lampeter, Wales

The Carry On's are quintessentially British in outlook and tone, with a reliance on bodily functions, female anatomy and double entendres that make the Farrelly Brothers 'comedies' look like models of restraint.

Set within the British position in India, Khyber raises its' sights as high as satire, with many a comment made about the state of the British nation in 1968 but also with a glib nod to the Victorian mores of that era. A splendid rosta of Carry On stars, superb names - The Khasi of Khalibar, Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond et al, excellent production values, a full-on script by Talbot Rothwell, and who can forget such wondrous lines as "She is enamoured of the Khasi", really do make this movie the highpoint of the 31-strong series.

A true British classic, possibly the best British comedy of them all and so utterly charming in its' outlook of trying to keep it stiff (upper lips, of course!) that it remains as fresh today as it did in the sixties.
