This was the second 'Carry On' film, and a hit in the United States. The patients in a men's hospital ward decide to revolt against the staff, as led by the indomitable Matron (Hattie Jacques). Troublesome patients include Kenneth Williams, Leslie Phillips, Kenneth Connor and Charles Hawtrey. Producer Peter Rogers was offered a five-movie deal on the strength of this film's success.

Carry On Nurse was the second in the Carry On stream of British comedies that began with Carry On Sergeant and lasted for nearly 20 years. You'll either love 'em or you'll hate 'em. You'll love Carry On Nurse, or at least feel a warm, gentle glow of nostalgia break out over you like a rash, if naughty humor based on bedpans, buxom nurses, buttock massages and bunions make you smile. We're in a hospital ward where the male patients are ruled by Matron and where almost every nurse is a knock-out. Naturally, they innocently cause acute adjustment problems for the men who are away from wives and girlfriends. The Carry On gang is represented here by Kenneth Connor as an anxious but well-meaning boxer; Kenneth Williams, all intellectual condescension; Terence Longdon, the good-looking observer; Charles Hawtrey, who made mincing about an art form; Hattie Jacques as the iron-willed Matron; and a number of others, including a solo appearance by Wilfred Hyde-White as a demanding patient who winds up in the best joke of the movie. It involves that daffodil. Among the nurses is Shirley Eaton, guaranteed to disturb any man's dreams.
The story, such as it is, is even slighter than Carry On Sergeant. Carry On Nurse is really a series of episodic vignettes and jokes, leading up to Hawtrey swishing about in a nurse's uniform, Williams brandishing knives and preparing to remove a bunion while reading how to do it, Connor administering the anesthetic which turns out to be laughing gas, and poor Lesley Phillips, who just wanted his bunion fixed so he could get on with a bit of snogging he'd arranged for the next day.Read more ›
Standout amongst the performances are Hattie Jacques as the 'Matron', who all the hospital staff are terrified of. However even Matron is lost for words when Oliver (played by Kenneth Williams) tells her the truth about 'the rules'. To pick one member of the cast is unfair though, as they are all good and amazingly some are still with us to this day.
The film is also a reflection of its time. Single sex wards and smoking in them as well - surely some mistake!
This is simple film, the like of which are not made today. Buy it and be entertained.
Made in the days when nurses had time for their patients, hospitals looked like hospitals should be and Matron was in charge.

I have to agree with another reviewer who called this one of the weaker Carry On films. It is very slow and static and the producers had not yet found out how to make a proper... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Staffan Lindström

This film was released in 1959 and was the second in the Carry On series. I know that this film is beloved by many Carry On fans and features the notorious "daffodil" scene. Read morePublished 22 months ago by FJY
