In Carry On Follow That Camel, Sergeant Bilko himself, Phil Silvers, lends lustre and trademark spectacles to this 1967 desert spectacle following the adventures of a group of foreign legionnaires who find themselves besieged by a bloodthirsty band of Bedouins. Silvers plays Sergeant Nocker, a rogue cast firmly in the Bilko mould, who takes a dislike to new recruit Jim Dale, a young upper class gent forced to join the legion following disgrace at a cricket match. He's accompanied, naturally, by his faithful manservant (Peter Butterworth), with the pair showing a fine disregard for the austere requirements of the Foreign Legion. However, once they reach an agreement with Sergeant Nocker, they can join forces to repel the Bedouins, led, not unpredictably, by Bernard Bresslaw.

This is vintage Carry On, in spite of Sid James' absence. Kenneth Williams' performance is subdued by having to deliver the usual puns ("zere are a couple of points I still need to go over", he informs busty Joan Sims) in a mangled French accent but Silvers gets into the right mode of delivering broad comedy with subtle inflections. Peter Butterworth draws the short straw this time and must feature in the obligatory cross-dressing scene, while Charles Hawtrey is a splendidly unconvincing hardened legionnaire. As for Bresslaw, can any other British actor, with the exception of Sir Alec Guinness, have distinguished himself in such a variety of multi-ethnic roles?

On the DVD: Sadly, there are no extra features except scene selection. The picture ratio is 4:3. --David Stubbs

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing 16 May 2006
Carry On Follow That Camel (1967) lacks the pace and sparkle of some of the Carry On's other historical epics which is surprising as it was always the period comedies where the team scored best. The fact that Sid James, Barbara Windsor and Hattie Jaques are missing may have something to do with it. As a substitute for the absence of Sid James, the team brought in American comedian Phil Silvers who enjoyed success with his self-titled television show in the 1960's. Basically Silvers reprises his role as Sergeant Bilko in this entry (his only Carry On) and it doesn't quite blend in so well with the rest of the teams characterisations although there are some laughs to be along the way.

After being accused of cheating in a cricket match, Bertram Oliphant (Jim Dale in a familiar characterisation) gives up his fiancee (Angela Douglas) and with his bumbling butler Simpson in tow (Peter Butterworth) joins the Foreign Legion. The Fort he ends up in, which is run by Sergeant Knocker (Phil Silvers) soon comes under seige from Seeikh Abdul Abulbul (played brilliantly by Bernard Bresslaw who relishes every manically evil moment).

The desert scenes are vastly impressive and other regulars of the cast such as Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Joan Sims (who is shamefully underused in this one though still puts inan effective performance as the sultry and exotic Zigzig) but the feel-good factor of most of the Carry On films is evidently missing here. Though there are some laughs to be endured the film can best be described as just enjoyably average overall.

3.0 out of 5 stars unsettling in places 21 Mar 2007
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
everyone knows that phil silvers of sgt.bilko fame got the role as sid james was too ill to do this 1967 movie,the producer thought that a big name could fill the void,it couldnt,plus they feed silvers ego by letting him perform some of his own material and staring straight down the camera one time too often,as if he is trying to bond with the audience.However in saying that carry on camel is still a good movie featuring kenny williams,angie ouglas,bernie bresslaw,peter butterworth,joan sims,and jim dale and this film deals with the french foreign legion from the training to the moment of battle,filmed in a beach in england,brighton i think,the film still looks as if it is filmed abroad,the film is witty in what it does but some leading members play second fiddle to silvers,i suppose on a global scale he was the bigger star but this is carry on and we love who we love ,simple as that really,this is a three star film in my opinion and of course that means you should still find a spot for it in your collection.

Set in a boiling desert, The French Foriegn Leigon headed by Commadant Burger (Kenneth Williams) and Captain Le Pice (Charles Hawtrey) and based in Fort Soixante-Neuf!!! With an Aristocrat Cricketer BO West (Jim Dale) makes this film a highlight of the series brimming with innuendo and style particulaly from Kenny, Charlie, Peter Butterworth and Joan Sims in a particulaly memorable Carry On role as Zig-Zig! Perhaps the best performance however is Bernard Bresslaw in a truly menacing desert Sheikh. The film is a must-see Carry On. The only mistake is putting Phil Silvers in Sid James well earned place.

With the carry on films you know what the content of the dvds are, there are no surprises - they are funny and entertaining for quite a wide audience.

You know what you are getting - and most are suitable for the whole family.

A carry on film starring Phil Silvers of "Bilko" fame, and set in the Foreign Legion should be a mouth watering prospect. Sadly that would be just a good waste of saliva. Read more
