Carry On Up The Khyber
Rank / Peter Rogers

Director: Gerald Thomas
Producer: Peter Rogers
Screenplay: Talbot Rothwell
Music: Eric Rogers

Made at Pinewood Studios and on location in Snowdonia, Wales

The Imperial Raj of the late nineteenth century sees British diplomat Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond passionately defending his cushy job in one of the last decadent outposts of the British Empire. Making life difficult for him are his domineering wife and local tribesmen, the Burpas, the screaming mad hordes of the even madder Khazi of Kalabar ( who actually fancies a bit of ruff - Lady Ruff-Diamond ), and he is fighting using every weapon at his disposal including those up the kilts of the disgraced Third Foot and Mouth Highland regiment, the stereotypically chronic 'carry on' under-achievers.


Shooting started Spring 1968     Debuts: Roy Castle and Cardew Robinson appear in their only 'Carry On' film

Whilst filming the banquet scene at the end of the movie, all the actors were trying their best not to actually eat any of the food as all the building debris was falling into it. The minutes passed, and they had to put something in their mouths as they had shoved the food around their plates for long enough. The stony silence was eventually broken by Sid James shouting "...Bastards!" when he realised that Gerald Thomas had stopped rolling the cameras ages ago, and had just left them all to get on with it.

Carry On Camping
Rank / Peter Rogers

Director: Gerald Thomas
Producer: Peter Rogers
Screenplay: Talbot Rothwell
Music: Eric Rogers

Made at Pinewood Studios and 'on location' in adjacent muddy fields

Two guys, Bresslaw and James, take their (to them) strait-laced girlfriends on a camping holiday to what they had thought was a nudist camp in a desperate attempt to spice up their love lives, but find that it is just a normal (?!) campsite.
The denizens, under the money-grabbing auspices of farm owner Peter Butterworth, are the not totally unexpected mix of nagging wives and social outcasts and things look pretty bleak for the pair until Miss Haggard and Dr.Soaper arrive with a coachload of young ladies on a field trip. This film, somewhat sadly, brings the 'age of innocence' of Carry On to an end. Containing the most famous scene in the series, involving Barbara Windsor and a less than structurally sound support garment, this was the first Carry On film to actually show 'naughty bits', setting a precedent for every 'Carry On' since.


Shooting started Autumn 1968
