Carry On At Your Convenience [AKA Carry On Round The Bend] (1971, dir. Gerald Thomas)

A toilet factory is troubled by poor sales and industrial action. No lavatorial joke opportunity goes unpunished in this sitcom-ish patchy series entry (the 22nd), the series’ first underperformer at the box office (it makes the mistake of punching down). Of its time, to put it mildly. A couple of genius moments shine through, though the film has principal value as a social document and for exploring ideas (and locations) reused in Carry On Girls a couple of years later.

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.
