"My you've got a big one."

- 'Ding Dong' Belle Armitage (Joan Sims) referring to Syd's pistol.

- states all Englishmen are bound to think in a SMUTTY way.

A mixup with Washington's politics sends a drainage cleaner to clean up the town of Stodge city, thats in the grip of a crime wave caused by the Rumpo Kid.

Sure, 'Carry on' movies are predictable and the humours dated. Carry on Cowboy doesn't deviate or let the franchies down on its traditional formula. It fires off smutty innuendos like Billy the Kids fires off bullets pew pew - posses/pussy's, cows/bullocks, passes/arses. But Gerald Thomas's 'Carry On Cowboy's easily one of the better entries in the series, features impeccable production values (maybe even Carry On's finest?), great performances (which hasn't always been the case) Syd James cuts a memorable cowboy, putting in a fantastic turn (Yankee Accent and all) as Johnny 'the Rumpo Kid' Finger. Kenneth "Ooh, err!" Williams is great as the aged sheriff needing a young gun, ooh err. And the ever likable Jim Dale as the hapless new hero, and pretty Angela Douglas his love interest. From the rootin'n tootin sharp shootin' opening through to its kickass shootout I had a smile on my face, you can't really ask for more than that.

[Personal Reasons For Remembering]

Doctor Who's Jon Pertwee (yay). Indian jokes ahoy with Big Heap & Little Heap "nevermind HOW" hehe that was classic, its the original don't call me Shirley joke. Annie Oakley (Angela Douglas) saloon song. Joan Simms was a natural treasure as are Carry On movies.
