Product description

Product Description

In Carry On Up The Jungle, the "Carry On" team go ape crazy in darkest Africa, as Professor Inigo Tinkle (Frankie Howerd) and his clumsy sidekick, Claude Chumley (Kenneth Connor), embark on a bird fancying expedition. Instead of finding the rare Oozulum bird, however, a vast array of other wildlife is encountered--including a forgotten tribe of gorgeous, man-hungry females, and a loin-clothed, vine-swinging Jungle Boy (Terry Scott), who becomes the unlikely hero of the riotous romp. As primitive passions are unleashed, parodies of "Tarzan" and other jungle classics are finely executed in true "Carry On" form. Sid James as the fearless white hunter Bill Boosey, Joan Sims as the haughty Lady Bagley, and Charles Hawtrey as Tonka – happily get native for this classic "Carry On" film.

From Amazon.co.uk

Carry On Up the Jungle has worn less well than some of the others in the series, simply because the African exploration genre it parodies--with its cannibals, great white hunters and lost Amazon tribes--is so entirely out of fashion. Still, Frankie Howerd made so comparatively few films that in one which has him as an ornithologist searching for rare birds in the company of Joan Sims and Sid James is not going to be entirely without interest. He has few great moments here, but runs through his usual repertoire of groans and horse-faced sorrowful expressions with brio. The idea of Terry Scott playing Tarzan is in itself such a good joke that it hardly matters that most of what follows is him swinging, on ropes, into obstacles. --Roz Kaveney
