Carry On Abroad (1972, dir. Gerald Thomas)

Assorted Brits book onto a package break to the resort of Elsbels. Single entendre-tastic and somewhat shopworn series entry, focused – like others of its time – on holidaying to set up character arcs, innuendo and basic gags. Almost a subversion of the disaster genre: Peter Butterworth is on fine form here.

Here’s the trailer.

Carry On Girls (1973, dir. Gerald Thomas)

A struggling seaside resort – Fircombe – hosts a beauty contest to attract visitors. Tatty late series entry, from the third – holiday-based – cycle of Carry On flicks. Either harmless picture postcard fun or a relic from a bygone age: a stagey sex farce that’s fascinating if not that funny.

Here’s the trailer.
