Product Description

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 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.

They just don't make them like this anymore..

The blu-ray picture quality is extremely crisp, I have purchased all the recent blu-ray releases of the Carry On's and they are all well presented, but cowboy has the edge. The print is bright and colorful with lots of detail that I have never noticed before.

The soundtrack is nothing to write home about but completely serviceable for a film of this vintage.

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.

Of the 3 Carry Ons to emerge on Blu-ray thus far (the others being Cleo & Screaming), this is by far the best in quality. The picture is sharp, you can even see the make-up on the actors' faces. As far as the movie itself goes, well I'm sure you know it by now. Having watched it hundreds of times it was great so finally see it in such great quality. You'd think it was filmed yesterday. I hope that following the Anglo Amalgamated/Studio Canal releases that we also see Blu-ray releases for the later Rank distributed Carry Ons. My only minor gripe would be that it would have been good to have a few more extras and maybe a booklet such as the ones supplied with the Rank era DVDs. After all, this Blu-ray doesn't exactly come cheap!

Carry on Cowboy is a great film, although really it has no right to be; an institution as British as the Carry On series should fall flat on it's face when spoofing something as alien to it as the American West. But everyone seems to realise that their backs are against the wall and turn in performances of real quality: every line is timed and delivered to perfection. Cowboy is much more than a rainy afternoon film.

Following the International success of the hilarious classic, Carry On Cleo (1964), Gerald Thomas and Peter Rogers decided another parody was what was need to keep the series vital and alive. Written by Talbot Rothwell, the team came up with another one of their very best entries in the series with Carry On Cowboy (1965).

There was always a loose structure to the plot in most Carry On films but with this one, its far more concentrated, with a surprisingly gritty, hard-edged realism behind the laughs. The action is set in the heart of Stodge City which lies in the heart of the Wild West where the notorious Rumpo Kid (Sid James) and his gang are striking fear into all the residents of the local community. Desperate to bring his deadly and violent reign to an end, Judge Burke (Kenneth Williams) hastily sends for a sheriff but through a comic misunderstanding (this is a Carry On film after all) ends up being sent a sanitary engineer with the laughably named Marshall P. Knutt (Jim Dale) who is accident-prone from the word go! Luckily for him, help is at hand in the shape of the volatile Annie Oakley (Angela Douglas) who turns up at Stodge City seeking revenge on her fathers murderer who just so happens to be the Rumpo Kid!

The merry Carry On gang all take on surprisingly realistic American accents and carry it off remarkably well with some of the cast members even approaching their roles in a deadly serious manner. Sid James is excellent as the Rumpo Kid who doesn't quite shake off his own inimitable characterisation but is certainly the only role where he plays a genuine baddie, killing people seemingly by the minute.

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.
