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 Regardless

1961





Plot

The Helping Hands agency employs some very strange people to perform some very strange jobs! Even the simplest of tasks get bungled by the incompetent but lovable staff, as they get given jobs ranging from taking animals for walks (no ordinary animals you understand) to demonstrating new products at a large and prestigious exhibition…

Summary

More a collection of sketches loosely tied together than your usual Carry On film. The standard crew is almost in place by this point.

Carry On Nurse

1959





Plot

Set in Haven Hospital where a certain men's ward is causing more havoc than the whole hospital put together. The formidable Matron's debut gives the patients a chill every time she walks past, with only Reckitt standing up to her. There's a colonel who is a constant nuisance, a bumbling nurse, a romance between Ted York and Nurse Denton, and Bell who wants his bunion removed straight away, so after drinking alcohol, the men decide to remove the bunion themselves!

Summary

Very early in the Carry On series and doesn't really feel like one. Short on laughs.

Carry On Sergeant

1958





Plot

Sergeant Grimshaw wants to retire in the flush of success by winning the Star Squad prize with his very last platoon of newly called-up National Servicemen. But what a motley bunch they turn out to be, and it's up to Grimshaw to put the no-hopers through their paces.

Summary

The first Carry On film and it doesn't quite feel like one. Very few of the established cast are there and not in major roles.  It's okay but the series improved.
