Carry On

Carry On Girls

Gerald Thomas (1973)

A Certificate


Our Score
In this weak entry in the Carry On series, councillor Sidney Fiddler (Sid James) decides that a beauty contest is the only way to put the sleepy seaside resort of Fircombe on the map, which soon has his girlfriend Connie (Joan Sims) and the local feminists up in arms. Combining the gentle social satire of an Ealing comedy with the sniggering sauciness of a Donald McGill postcard, this is the least focused of the films. Much of the blame lies with Talbot Rothwell's script, which contains sequences that are more in keeping with the St Trinian's comedies. However, James and June Whitfield make lively adversaries and there are splendid supporting performances from Kenneth Connor as the feeble mayor and Patsy Rowlands as his newly liberated wife.
