Jimmy Logan gives unquestionably the worst pre-
Carry On Columbus
performance in this disappointing outing, which is every bit as jerry-built as the Elsbels Palace Hotel itself. With a stingy quota of jokes, the team's package holiday to Spain rapidly descends into predictable postcard innuendo and second-rate slapstick. There are one or two neat observations on the British abroad, and Peter Butterworth and Hattie Jacques have fun as the shiftless hotel boss and his fiery cook, but overall there's too little for the regulars to do. This is a sad series swan song for the inimitable Charles Hawtrey.
British holiday-makers jet off on a package holiday to the Spanish resort of Elsbels. Unluckily, not only is the hotel short of staff, but it also has no walls, ceilings or entertainment. Further mishaps leave the tourists fuming - until they sample a local punch laced with an aphrodisiac. Comedy, with Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Joan Sims.
