Carry On Cabby

1963





Plot

Speedee Taxis is a great success, which means its workaholic owner Charlie starts neglecting Peggy, his wife. Suddenly a fleet of rival taxis appears from nowhere and start pinching all the fares. The rivals are Glamcabs, and they have a secret weapon. All their drivers are very attractive women! Who's behind Glamcabs? It's open warfare and only one fleet can survive!

Summary

Back to Black & White for this one, not sure how that happened. Probably one the BBC won't show nowadays as it involves a rival female taxi crew whose main selling point is their sex.

Carry On Cruising

2018





Plot

Captain Crowther's lot is not a happy one! Five of his crew have to be replaced and at such short notice before the voyage begins there isn't much to choose from. Not only does he get the five most incompetent shipmates ever to sail the seven seas, but the passengers turn out to be a rather strange bunch too. The SS Happy Wanderer will never be the same.

Summary

The first Carry On in colour and is when they really got the formula right.
