Carry On Jack

1964





Plot

This is the tale of Albert Poop-Decker, a newly commissioned Midshipman (although he took 8 1/2 years to qualify). He joins the frigate Venus, and adventures through Spanish waters, mutinee and Pirates taking his Captain, his sweet-heart and his best-friend with him! With mistaken identities and shipwrecks awash, it's a surprise any of them live to tell the tale!

Summary

Colour again! Not many of the regular cast here but the brilliant Bernard Cribbins is a welcome addition.

Up Pompeii

1971





Plot

Roman slave Lurkio inadvertently becomes the possessor of a scroll naming the proposed assassins of the Emperor Nero. Administering to the participants of his master's orgy guests seems small compared to the trouble the scroll brings – but all are in for a nasty shock when Mount Vesuvius decides to erupt.

Summary

Maybe not quite reaching the heights it did in my memory but still a fun film from the days before political correctness ruined comedy.
