Product Description

Sid (Sid James) and Bernie (Bernard Bresslaw) attempt to trick their girlfriends into attending a nudist camp with them. Fellow holiday-makers include Dr Soaper (Kenneth Williams), his matron Miss Haggerd (Hattie Jacques), and their school of overdeveloped young girls (including Barbara Windsor). Camp carryings-on are guaranteed.

From Amazon.co.uk

There are three periods to Carry On. Early on, they were typical British light comedy capers, hardly risqué. By the 1970s, the loveable double-entendres had been replaced by an almost nasty sleaziness, culminating in 1977's Carry On Emanuelle. 1969's Carry On Camping, thankfully, belongs to the Golden Years. Pretty much everybody is present and correct, if not politically. Sid James is a likely-ish, if slightly elderly lad, persuading Joan Sims to join him at what he secretly expects to be a nudist colony. Terry Scott is a put-upon suburbian, coerced into outdoor vacations by his ghastly, horsey-laughed wife, while Charles Hawtrey is the campest of campers who befriends them. Kenneth Williams, who alone makes this worth watching, is gloriously ridiculous as head of a girl's school, Chayste Place, with Hattie Jacques as Matron and Barbara Windsor as one of the 30 year old fifth formers in their charge. Technically it's terrible stuff, with Barbara Windsor's flying bra, laboured puns galore, peeping tomfoolery, punchlines visible two miles off, "comedy" incidental music and a reactionary denouement in which they chase off a bunch of hippies. Yet if you don't chuckle at least half a dozen times during this, however many times you've seen it, there's probably something wrong with you. --David Stubbs

Okay so it's not an Ealing comedy, but for what it was, another in the series of formula 'camp' comedies by a well oiled machine that was the Carry On team, it is very good, one of the best. And I would hazard a guess and say it was most people's favourite. It certainly is my favourite, not least because nearly all the regulars are here: This must be the definitive Carry On cast. It's as though they've gathered together for one final fling as they sense the whole franchise may be on its last legs. And what better way to gather than to go on holiday, the British way, camping in the cold and wet. It's a very fair send up of British conservatism and unadventurousness, really, and actually ends up celebrating it, with the campers' successful expulsion of the more exotic young flower children gathered in the field for a rave. Has tremendous nostalgia value, this film, even if you were only a nipper when it came out, as I was. It sort of makes you pine for all that old stuff most people thought was naff even then. Oh, for a life of such simple pleasures, though. Yes, you can almost smell the Double Diamond waiting for you in the camp's own bar. A wonderful film to visit and revisit. This also has to be Terry Scott's finest hour.

Carry On Camping is easily one of the best in the series. As usual its full of predictable and ever corny gags but its the lovley team of actors that make this the classic it has become. Of course one of the most famous scene from a Carry On is in this one, where BARBARA WINDSORs' bikini top flys off during her morning exercises. This still manages to raise a chuckle now even after seeing this film at least one hundred times. There is no real plot as such. Its just basically fun and games at the paradise camp site with the best of the gang. The film is consistently funny and the best players are defintley the late KENNETH WILLIAMS and HATTIE JAQUES who share the funniest scenes. Amongst the rest of the cast are all the familiar faces which include SID JAMES, JOAN SIMS, CHARLES HAWTREY, TERRY SCOTT, BERNARD BRESSLAW, DILYS LAYE, JULIAN HOLLOWAY and BETTY MARSDEN (in a delightful role). A very good comedy and one of the most succesful in the series.

I wouldn't say this was the best in the series, the historical ones were better-made and superior, but for sheer light-hearted fun this takes some beating. It also strangely adds to the fun when you realise it was shot during a very cold October, and you can see the frosty breath coming out of the actor's mouths as they all try to pretend it's high summer! Terry Scott only appeared in a few Carry Ons, but his bumbling character here makes the film, as he tries desperately to break out of his sex-starved lifestyle with his awful hearty wife and her braying laugh. The scenes where they're sharing a tent with Charles Hawtrey, as the well-named Charley Muggins, are hilarious. Hattie Jacques is also on top form as the school matron, prancing around in a t-shirt with "Chayste Place" emblazoned across her vast bosom, and getting the hots for a terrified Kenneth Williams (the scene where she drags by his foot back into his tent as he's trying to make a getaway is priceless!). Plus, of course, it contains the famous Barbara Windsor busting-her-bra scene, and Sid James dressed as a hippy!

'Carry On Camping' is probably the best known entry in the 'Carry On' series, complete with Barbara Windsor's iconic bra popping scene, that's not the say it's the best, far from it. However, it is a very enjoyable comedy film nonetheless with all of the best loved 'Carry On' actors present, in top form, and in their typical roles.

The leading male characters Sid & Bernie, played to perfection by Sid James and Bernard Bresslaw, want to take their girlfriends (Joan Sims and Dilys Laye) on a nice, relaxing camping holiday ... on a nudist camping site. On arrival however, the pair soon discover it to be just a normal campsite. Their spirits are lifted although when Doctor Soaper (Kenneth Williams) and Miss Haggard (Hattie Jacques) arrive with a coach load of young girls, led by Barbara Windsor. Top marks to Peter Butterworth who is wonderful as the camp's tight fisted, penny pinching owner Mr. Fiddler.

This is a comedy classic from the word go, and there seems to be always something new to find to laugh at with every time you watch it. As all the famous gang are present, this is an ideal 'Carry On' to introduce someone to the series, being a strong example of what the series was all about - good clean(?) fun. However, I think the ending is a real let down, it should have been so much better.

Note: A later entry to the series, 'Carry On Behind' is often thought of as 'Camping Two' (and there are many similarities, even the locations are the same), and although a lot of the old gang aren't in it, I honestly do regard it as being even better, buy the two and judge for yourself.

One of the best of the Carry On series second only to Carry On At Your Convenience. Really side cracking nudge-nudge ,wink-wink humour , you should find yourself laughing two dozen times during this show.
Nostalgic value is aside not the least reason either for seeing this movie, which was filmed and hit the screens in a gentler, nice Britain more the dreadful political correctness , with its witch hunts and dour inquisitors, which has brought Britain to her knees.
Sid (Sid James) and Bernie (Bernard Bresslaw) decide to take their girlfriends Joan (Joan Fussey) and the nervously disposed Dilys (Anthea Meeks) camping, Sid thinking they are on the way to a nudist camp, but it ends up being a standard family camp, which is at the moment being visited by a finishing school of adorable, over sexed schoolgirls the ring leader being the bubbly , sexy and funny Babs (Barbara Windsor) and their strict and pompous schoolmaster Dr Kenneth Soper (Kenneth Williams) and the bumbling, controlling Miss Haggerd (Hatti Jaques).

Also thrown into the mix are Peter Potter (Terry Scott) who really doesnt want to be there and would rather be in Monaco, and his annoying , domineering wife Harriet (Betty Marsden) as well as the camp bespectacled Charles Hawtrey playing the unfortunate Charlie Muggins. This movie is well known for the much publicized scene where Babs' bra comes flying off during physical training. Judged risque at the time, it is all we see now very innocent.
And we conclude with the campers chasing off a band of hippies in the nearby meadow, but to the Dr Soper and Miss Haggard's horror the funloving girls stow away with the hippy band.

The stars of this show are undoubtedly Barbara Windsor and Sid James but all of the cast provide side splitting humour in the perfect intro to anyone who has not yet had the pleasure of seeing the Carry On series
