This review is from: Carry On Cowboy [DVD] (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.
