Product Description

Eleventh entry in the 'Carry On' series. Marshall P. Knutt (Jim Dale), a former sanitary engineer, becomes the sheriff of Stodge City in the Wild West and must help a young woman beat the Rumpo Kid (Sid James), the outlaw who shot her father. Those getting off their horses and drinking their milk include Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims and Bernard Bresslaw (making his 'Carry On' debut).

From Amazon.co.uk

Made in the "classic" period of the series, 1966's Carry On Cowboy is a spoof Western set in Stodge City, about to suffer the arrival of black-hatted outlaw The Rumpo Kid, played by the less-than-youthful Sid James. Kenneth Williams is the aptly named Judge Burke, who appeals to Washington for help to combat this gunslinger and his henchmen. Assistance arrives in the form of Jim Dale's Marshall P Knutt, a drainage, sanitation and garbage expert from England, with a reference from Lady Pushing for doing a "good job on her main sludge channel", whose Christian name provokes a predictable misunderstanding. Fortunately, he's accompanied by Annie Oakley. As ever, much fun is to be had cheering/groaning along to double-entendres about "big ones", but never mind the script, feel the characters. Joan Sims does a good Mae West impression; Syd James "Ha hwa-ha-ha!"s his way through his part with his usual aplomb; the underrated Peter Butterworth is excellent as an inept Doctor; while Bernard Bresslaw adds to his impressively multi-ethnic CV, playing a Native American, with Charles Hawtrey as his incorrigible firewater-loving Chief.

On the DVD: No extras, sadly, other than scene selection but Alan Hume's splendidly authentic colour lensing is suitably refurbished here. --David Stubbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The eleventh film in the series and a favourite for Sidney James. James is the Rumpo Kid. He enters Stodge City and takes it over. Meanwhile Judge Burke (Kenneth Williams) demands a Marshall and ends up with sanitation engineer Marshall P Knutt (Jim Dale). What follows is every tradition in Western movies being trampled all over by the team. While Williams and James play for real (with authentic American accents) the show is stolen by Charles Hawtrey as the campest Indian chief you'll ever see. It's worth buying this DVD just for his performance alone. There are series debuts here for Peter Butterworth, Bernard Bresslaw and Angela Douglas and this is Jim Dale's biggest role to date. Carry On Cowboy is also a great example of director Gerald Thomas filming a subject matter he loves. It's also obvious that Joan Sims and James are having a ball too.

The Carry On team finally decided to spoof the Western genre in this little gem of a film. The series was really at it's peak here. The actors are playing characters rather than just turning up as personalities and the story is a fun romp through Western Cliches.

Jim Dale and Angela Douglas are excellent romantic leads but the real stars of the show are Sid James and Joan Sims who really bring the danger and sexiness of their characters to life.

When Judge Burke sends for help to rid Stodge City of The Rumpo Kid and his gang of trouble makers, he's delighted to hear that he is being sent a trained Marshall. Trouble is is that it's Marshall P. Knutt, a trained sanitary engineer.

In 1964 the "Carry On" team has ventured into their first parody of the movies with Carry On Cleo. A huge success, and arguably the best film of the lot to many fans, it prompted the Thomas/Rogers/Rothwell team to believe that movie pastiche's was the way forward for the franchise. Enter Carry On Cowboy a year later. With a knowing of the genre and all its conventions, screenwriter Talbot Rothwell produced one of the better parodies to have ever been made. The stock cartoon fervour and cheeky asides still exist, but Carry On Cowboy is a more leaner, even darker "Carry On" than any of the others film's in the series. In its own right, with out the "Carry On" name attached, it's a fine comedy, with dashes of violence and even a revenge thread running thru it {courtesy of the gorgeous Angela Douglas as Annie Oakley}. It's also one of the few film's in the series to demand a bit more from its actors outside of guffaw jinx and innuendos. Sid James, Kenneth Williams and Joan Sims rise to the challenge, happy in the knowledge that Jim Dale and Charles Hawtrey were there to grab {and get} the laughs. 8/10

Format: DVD
This is one of the stand-out Carry-On films for a number of reasons - the amount of location filming done, the funny American twang everyone speaks in, and the perfect spoof on Western life.

Cut long story short, we see Marshal P. Knutt (Jim Dale), a drainage inspector, enter a small town and is immediately mistaken as a 'ranked' Marshall of the U.S Law. The Judge of the town realises that since no-one realises this mistake, P.Knutt should be the Marshall anyway...

Sid James plays 'Rumpo'; the rebell cow-boy of the town who as usual is up to no good. But his antic's aren't being forgotten - The absolutely gorgeous Angela Douglas play's a sassy Cow Girl secretly wants to put a bullet in his back!

The locations are fantastic, as are the sets and costumes. The only thing I've never liked about this film is the ending, which seems a little weak given the build up to the final fight. Never the less, this is a real laugh and even for '66 was a step away from traditional style comedies.

This film is a hilarious romp through the bars and bedrooms of the wild west with the carry on gang. Sid James is on top form as the rumpo kid, an outlaw who shakes up the sleepy residents of Stodge city. Kenneth Williams is the puritanical judge, and Jim Dale plays Marshall P Knutt, a hapless plumber mistankenly sent to clean up the town. This is a classic carry on and I highly recommended it.

I have already reviewed western classics like “Shane”, “Red River” and “The Searchers”, but how can I look at myself in the mirror in the morning knowing that I have neglected that shining example of the genre “Carry on Cowboy”. Whilst Sergio Leone was filming “The Good the Bad and the Ugly”, Gerald Thomas was wrestling with “Carry on Cowboy”, the 11th in the series and the only one to go over schedule. Filmed in the wilds of....err...Chobham Common and Pinewood Studios, the film lampoons all those westerns of yesteryear. Jim Dale plays the sanitary engineer P. Knutt, mistakenly recruited as sheriff to clean up Stodge City from the depredations of the Rumpo Kid, played by Sid James.

I will admit to having a soft spot for the ‘Carry on’ franchise, with its very British saucy postcard brand of humour, full of crude double entendres. Sid James gets the best lines. On one occasion he comments ”I once talked peace with a Sioux, but you can’t trust them. One moment its peace on and the next its peace off”. After shooting three men, he says “I wonder what they wanted”. All good hearty comfort food for the Carry on fan! There are lots of dodgy American accents with Kenneth Williams giving it his all as Judge Burke. Charles Hawtrey is hilarious as Chief Big Heap, and Bernard Bresslaw makes his Carry on debut as Little Heap. Jon Pertwee has a funny cameo as the blind and deaf Sheriff Earp. Percy Herbert appears as a bartender, and clearly made an impression as he went on to co star in the Cimarron TV series, and also popped up in “Captain Apache” and “Man in the Wilderness”.

The film bears similarities to that other western parody “Paleface”, starring Bob Hope.
