'Carry On Behind' is not generally regarded as one of the best of the Carry On's but in spite of lacking both Sid James & Barbara Windsor I think it is still one of the best. Its rather like a remake of 'Carry On Camping' with an Archaeological twist added to the plot. Kenneth Williams and Elke Sommer are simply brilliant as the two main characters in the film and along with the usual amount of lechery from Kenneth Connor (Major Leep), some beautiful babes, innuendos in almost every line and the usual slapstick Carry On chaos the film is a delight from start to finish and really cheers you up its so daft!
Also great in the film are Jack Douglas as 'Alf' and new boy Windsor Davies who play the main 'older blokes on the pull' pair in the film. Bernard Bresslaw is 'Sidliss' this time but instead does a sterling job as a henpecked husband who is forced to go on holiday with his battle axe mother in law (brilliantly played by dear Joan Sims). Sure, all the jokes have been done to death a million times and the comedy is as stuck in the 70's as anything you could buy on DVD but if you like the 'bawdy, un PC' element of British Comedy from the 1970's you will love this.
The extras are also great on the DVD. Not only do you get the main film, an audio commentary version is also included (featuring four of the cast), there's a 'Carry On Trivia' feature, a 'Stills Gallery' AND the 'Who Needs Kitchener?' episode from the spin-off 'Carry On Laughing' T.V series as well as a collectable and informative colour booklet!
All in all, even if you have to fork out a few more pounds per copy to 'Mr Fiddler' (Peter Butterworth plays a similar character here), 'Carry On Behind' is well worth purchasing!
