Ronald Fraser offers a neat cameo as the lecherous Reggie, and a suitably over-the-top Derren Nesbitt is London gangster Sid Sabbath, furious to learn that his own sister has been bedded by this randy con.
Genuinely funny moments are pressed between Emery donning his array of disguises, and indulging in silly voices, and knicker-snatching, while the women (Julie Crosthwaite, Cheryl Kennedy etc) can do little more than feign interest as they bare their bottoms.
Not so much a Carry On as a Hurry up, please ...
Dick Emery plays 'Charlie Tully' - a clever con man whose every 'yarn' is believed. Not missing an opportunity, Charlie sells a dog that does not belong to him and ends up in prison. After conning the Prison Officer (and half of the other Prison staff too!) he gets out, and is in pursuit of his former partner's string of girlfriends, so that he can 'expose' their backsides in order to piece together the number of a combination to a safe - part of which is tattooed upon each of these girls' nether regions!
Everyone who enjoyed Dick's Shows and characters will love this - they're all here, including; 'Mandy Dunnit' as a trainee Police Woman and 'Hetty' who makes the Porter (Jimmy Gardner) run for his life in an hilarious scene when she utters those famous lines in spinster-ish frustration: 'Are You Married'?
Pat Coombs also stars - alongside lots of other big names and so many familiar faces you will lose count!
Great British Classic!
