Storyline

Captain S. Melly takes over as the new Commanding Officer at an experimental mixed sex air defence base. It's 1940 and England is under heavy bombardment, but the crew seem more interested in each other than the enemy planes above. Captain Melly plans to put a stop to all this, and becomes the target of a campaign to abandon his separatist ideals... Written by Simon N. McIntosh-Smith <Simon.N.Smith@cs.cf.ac.uk>

Trivia

When the gigantic gun arrived at Pinewood Studios, producer Peter Rogers wrote to Imperial War Museum Department of Exhibits curator Peter Simkins, and said "...when it came through the Studio gates [the gun] drew gasps of approval. No one in the studios has a bigger gun at the moment, not even Bond" as The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) starring Roger Moore was about to start shooting in a few months and was in pre-production.

Goofs

When the toggle on the gun is pulled back that supposedly injures Captain S. Melly's fingers, it doesn't actually make contact with them. See more »

Quotes

Appalling.
23 June 2001 | by (Aber, Wales) – See all my reviews

Rubbish. Along with Carry on Emmanuelle this is the worst of the series. I've got a lot of time for these films, but this was inexcusable. By this time (1976) the joke was no longer funny and the juice had run dry, as Sid James might have put it.

Only two of the Carry On regulars are in this and even they look bored. The jokes are staid and formulaic, delivered with the speed and panache of a postman. The budget for the film appeared to be £2.50.

Even Windsor Davies' Sergeant's bellowing couldn't save this.

1.5/10
