Trivia

The hotel used in the film for location shooting is the Claridges Hotel, Brighton. This hotel was also used for exterior shots in Carry on Girls (1973) and was owned by actress Dora Bryan who appeared in the first "Carry On" film Carry on Sergeant (1958). Patsy Rowlands tells the story how when the cast bus was on its way to Brighton, Charles Hawtrey said, "You watch when we get to Brighton, Dora [Dora Bryan] will come running out of the hotel in her stilettos and greet as all". On arrival at the hotel, this is exactly what happened. See more »

Quotes

Lewis Boggs: You may not understand exactly what it means, but since I have been working in this factory I have been making a time and motion study.
Chloe Moore: Oh I know what it means Mr Lewis and if you've got the time I've certainly got the motion.
Lewis Boggs: Don't think I haven't noticed it Mrs Moore, especially in your main production department.
Chloe Moore: Oh you cheeky devil.

Carry On team go political and ostracise their fans?
17 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like this entry in the series, I really do. Many others however find it a dud and feel that it should be flushed down one of the toilets that feature at W.C. Boggs' factory in the film. Blending the obvious toilet gags with a tale about unionised shop floors, the Carry On team have actually crafted one of the franchise's less mucky pictures. Sid James, so long the bastion of sexually driven lechery in Carry On folklore, has a very restrained role in this one, and this to me somewhat explains to an extent why "Convenience" is often shunned by the series fans.

Elsewhere it's the subplots away from the factory that put the smile on my face. Charles Hawtrey is indulging in strip poker with shop steward, Vic Spanner's, mother!. While James' Sid Plummer is getting horse racing winners from his budgie,! all under the watchful eye of his apparently scatty wife Beattie {a terrific Hattie Jacques}. Sexy eye candy for us blokes comes in the form of Jacki Piper, and the film finale on the Brighton seaside is drunken buffoonery to at least raise a giggle or two. Not the best Carry On by a long shot predicted by Sid's budgie, but certainly not one of the worst either. 6.5/10
