Carry On Cabby

Carry On Cabby

Gerald Thomas (1963)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Proving a fare's a fare in love and war, the best of the black-and-white Carry Ons began life as a script by the then little-known Talbot Rothwell entitled Call Me a Cab. Having just parted company with regular scriptwriter Norman Hudis, producer Peter Rogers brought Rothwell into the fold and he went on to pen the next 19 films in the series. Pitting workaholic Sid James against the long-suffering Hattie Jacques, the battle between Speedee Taxis and Glamcabs is packed with hilarious incidents and cracking performances, not least from Kenneth Connor and Esma Cannon as the respective loyal lieutenants and Charles Hawtrey as the hapless Pintpot.


The neglected wife of a workaholic taxi owner grows increasingly tired of his lack of interest in their marriage. In a ploy to bring him to his senses, she secretly launches a rival cab firm with a driver roster made up of attractive women, who soon tempt his customers away. Comedy, starring Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Kenneth Connor and Charles Hawtrey.
