Trivia

The name Allcock was questioned by the 1950s' censors, especially how much the characters constantly say it with such precision on the "cock" part, but they eventually allowed it to pass. See more »

Goofs

Although several Internet sources refer to Mr. Wakefield as the school's headmaster, he is specifically stated at the start of the film to be the DEPUTY headmaster - the equivalent of a vice principal here in Canada - who is running the school due to the actual headmaster's illness. See more »

buoyed up by the magnificent Joan Sims
10 August 2004 | by didi-5See all my reviews

This school-based variation on St Trinian's, with the little horrors (including a very young Richard O'Sullivan) driving their teachers mad, was one of the earliest of the Carry On series and a particularly good one.

Key members of the team come together here - Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims (always worth watching, hilarious), Hattie Jacques, and Kenneth Connor - alongside other showy actors such as Ted Ray, Leslie Phillips, and Rosalind Knight.

Names are fun as ever (Sims is 'Miss Allcock') and the action is fun, frenetic, and entertaining. I loved the scene with the itching powder that ruins a meeting; as well as the chaos in the staff room - not to mention of course the goings-on with the two horny couples (Phillips and Sims; Connor and Knight). Never a dull moment.
