Trivia

The only ever appearance in a "Carry On" movie for actors Juliet Mills, Cecil Parker and Donald Houston. See more »

Goofs

In many scenes, the ordinary sailors and pirates are seen wearing shoes on board the ship. Sailors in these times went barefoot aboard ship as it made it easier to move on the generally wet deck and to climb into the rigging. See more »

The First One I Would See
18 June 2004 | by richard.fuller1See all my reviews

Caught the second half of "Carry On Jack" about seven years ago. Thought it was completely unreal.

I recognized Cribbins from the Doctor Who movies with Peter Cushing. Here he reminds me a bit like John Cleese at times, and Trevor Bannister off "Are You Being Served?"

Clearly he is filling the blank left by Kenneth Conner.

Wonder why Juliet Mills appeared in this? As Haley's sister and Sir John's daughter, surely she could have gotten whatever she wanted and didn't have to join this bandwagon.

She reminded me of the young girl who "posed" as a boy in "Swiss Family Robinson". Not at all convincing.

The cow in the lifeboat bit was good.

The amputation joke would have NEVER existed in American film or television back in '64.

The one joke I always recalled was 'the captain fell on deck right where that plaque is.'

"I'm not surprised, I nearly tripped over the silly thing the other day myself."

When I first heard that line, I had to do a triple take.

No, Sid James, Kenneth Conner, Joan Sims, dear Hattie and Barbara Windsor (thus far, I have only seen her in one, Carry On Spying) weren't in this one.

The interchanging performers basically doing the same characters is a standout for this assortment of movies.

Now on to the next Carry On: Carry On Cowboy.

yee-hah!
