Peggy, the bored and frustrated wife of 'Speedee Cabs' taxi firm owner Sid James decides to fight back against his obsession and starts up a rival company of her own, with mini-skirted girl drivers in pink 'Glam-Cabs'.

'Twas on the good ship Venus…or some closely related vessel. The bumbling buccaneers board the nincom-poop deck in this parody of 'Mutiny On The Bounty'.

Juliet Mills, disguised as a young midshipman who has run away to sea, is the cause of some understandable confusion amongst the not-so-able seamen.
Things, if possible, somehow take a turn for the worse when they end up at the mercy of the Spanish Inquisition due to a 'minor navigational error'.

        

This was the first historical 'Carry On', filmed in period costume, and was originally titled 'Carry On Sailor'
