This is the tale of industrial strife at WC Boggs' Lavatory factory. Vic Spanner is the union representative who calls a strike at the drop of a hat; eventually everyone has to get fed up with him. This is also the ideal opportunity for lots of lavatorial jokes... Written by

Set in a toilet making factory, hence the title, this is a fun romp. Given the setting, you just know there will be in jokes, double entendres and the like. Sid James, Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtry, amongst others, are at their madcap best here. The story never flags, even though the cast is pretty large. You even have richness from the peripheral characters here, they add to the fun. One of the film's main assets is the fresh faced beauty Jacki Piper, who plays Myrtle Plummer (I know, the last name is obvious, but that's okay). Of the Carry On films I've watched (about 8), this is my favorite thus far. It holds your interest and you can't help but laugh. It is definitely worth your time, in a time honored British comedy vein.
