The notorious highwayman Dick Turpin disguises himself as a vicar to avoid capture in this 'Carry On' costume outing. Sid James, Barbara Windsor, Kenneth Willliams and Hattie Jacques head the cast.
The 18th century, with its frills and bawds, was ideal territory for the Carry On team: Carry On Dick is one of the few of the series where one notices the quality of the art direction in intervals between terrible old Talbot Rothwell jokes and the creaking of standard farce moments. Captain Fancy (Kenneth Williams) is sent to the remote village of Upper Denture to arrest Big Dick Turpin (Sid James) and makes the mistake of confiding in the local Rector, the Reverend Flasher (who is Big Dick's secret alter ego). Dick has troubles of his own: his liaison with his housemaid and henchperson Harriet (Barbara Windsor) is perpetually interrupted by his amorous housekeeper (Hattie Jacques). Meanwhile, Joan Sims struts around the plot as the proprietor of a touring show of scantily clad young women. This is not one of the best of the series--a certain mean-spiritedness creeps in to the humour as does the self-conscious awareness that 1974 was a date a little late for some of the more sexist jokes--but any film with Kenneth Williams discussing satin coats with his tailor has something going for it. --Roz KaveneySee all Product description

Captain Fancey (Kenneth Williams) has an aim in life is to get his hands on the notorious Big Dick Turpin. Together with Sergeant Jock Strapp (Jack Douglas), he enlists the help of Reverend Flasher (Sid James) to help to track the outlaw down. The only problem with the latter is that this Rev isn't all he seems.
This is by no means a perfect 'Carry On', but 'Dick' is still thoroughly entertaining, with the usual endless smut, and good performances from the gifted cast, most of whom are the well-established dream team. There are better historical spoofs in this series for sure, namely 'Up the Khyber', but this one is still far superior to the dire 'England' which followed.
The DVD, like all of the 'Carry On' 'special editions', also contains a collectable booklet with facts, figures and biographies of the actors. You also have a film commentary from Jack Douglas, and one of the better entries in the ITV 'Carry On Laughing' series, the episode 'The Case of the Coughing Parrot', with Douglas and Kenneth Connor playing at detectives.
