A beautiful Russian archeologist joins a British dig with chaotic results. Things are further complicated by the presence of hordes of glamorous campers at the caravan park next door. Elke Sommer, Kenneth Williams, Windsor Davies and Joan Sims star.
The discovery of valuable archaeological remains beneath a holiday caravan site is the cause of the mayhem in Carry On Behind. That said, the sub-"plots", which involve Windsor Davies and Jack Douglas as a pair of randy fishermen, a couple sharing their caravan with an outsize dog (no, it's not like that...), the obligatory giggling dolly birds and so on are all typical grist to the Carry On mill. The location is of course as bleakly miserable as such a place could ever be and will bring a frisson of familiarity to many Brits. Widely held to be one of the best in the series, the film would in fact have been a rather lacklustre effort were it not for the superbly over-the-top presence of Elke Sommer, whose performance as the strapping assistant to archaeologist Roland Crump (Kenneth Williams) seems like a wonderful hybrid of Ute Lemper and Charlie Dimmock. --Roger Thomas --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.See all Product Description

It's the height of the summer season and a group of holiday makers arrive on the dingy-looking caravan park for their annual holidays. The dedicated archaelogists begin their frantic search for the Roman town and start digging enthusiastically away, subsequently leading to the the entire caravan park nearly sinking into the ground after a torrential thunderstorm on the last night of the holiday.
This 1975 entry in this much-loved British comedy film series marked the beginning of the end of the Carry On series. Screenplay writer Talbot Rothwell (who had taken over as writer from Norman Hudis in 1963 with Carry On Cabby) essentially retired from the Carry On films after 1974's Carry On Dick due to nervous exhaustion. Carry On Dick marked the end of an era in more ways than one as it also saw the swift departure of three of its most popular stars: Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Barbara Windsor.
Scriptwriter Dave Freeman was drafted into the fold having already worked with producer Peter Rogers and director Gerald Thomas on the 1972 film version of the hit ITV sitcom, Bless This House. Dave Freeman's windy, sparky and far bluer dialogue was more risque, a trend that had started to emerge in the vast majority of the 1970s Carry On's. The jokes and endless gags all overflow on smutty innuendo and double entendres even though Freeman was in fact attempting to vaguely recapture the spirit and flavour of 1969's classic Carry On Camping.Read more ›
Both films make for wonderful, "escapist" viewing, and are so wonderfully silly at points that you can't not laugh.
Even without Sid - for whom Windsor Davies' role as Fred the butcher had been originally custom-written - the film captures that wonderful low-budget, cheerful era of home-grown British comedy the likes of which we'll not see again.
Behind stands up against all the other Carry Ons as an equal classic. It brightens up any miserable, rainy Sunday.
I know that there aren't that many people who will regard this late entry as their ''favourite'', but the film is a joy from start to finish, certainly better than the ones that followed (avoid 'England' at all costs).
Professors Anna Vooshka (Elke Sommer) and Ronald Crump (Kenneth Williams) are sitting on the archaeological find of the decade! There is however one slight problem, a local campsite is also sitting on it. In addition to this, Professor Vooshka's plans for Crump extend beyond the dig. The gags come thick and fast. From the very start, you are well entertained.
In the cast, there are lots of Carry On legends present, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Kenneth Connor and Peter Butterworth (in his final Carry On) are all on top form. Newcomer Windsor Davis manages to (almost) fill the shoes of the much loved Sid James and Windsor and Jack Douglas (wonderful as the randy Major Leep) form an hilarious double act. Some call this 'Carry On Camping 2', it is indeed very similar to the classic 'Camping' (they even used to same caravan site), but personally, I have always regarded 'Behind' as better.
Disregard anything that you might hear about it, 'Carry On Behind' is a brilliant, if lesser-known and unappreciated Carry On movie.
The DVD release is also very good, featuring an audio commentary with four members of the cast, a trivia feature, a photo gallery, and a parody of 'Upstairs Downstairs' with 'Who Needs Kitchener?', an episode of the ITV 'Carry On Laughing' series.
Of the DVD extras, the commentary has its moments, but there are too many people. Perhaps what would have worked better would be to have two commentaries, one with Dave Freeman (scriptwriter) being interviewed and one with the rest of the cast in conversation (Rowlands, Douglas, Larry Dann). It tended to get a bit confusing, and not all the comments are audible without fiddling around with the volume. Plus there are a few too many digressions -- I was more interested in hearing about the film itself, than about how nice Les Dawson and Benny Hill were or how much Rowlands enjoyed working with Tony Richardson on Tom Jones! Having said that, it was still an enjoyable and entertaining commentary.
Nicest extra is the stills gallery, comprising a slide show of some charming, rarely seen behind-the-scenes shots, with written commentary and Eric Rogers' music.

I love carry on films so does my 10 year old but I have to say that this one was dare I say it slightly boring. Maybe because Sid James and Hattie Jacques were not in. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Cindy
