Synopsis

Rubber DuckySid Fiddler’s (Sid James) plan to boost a rundown seaside resort by staging a beauty contest doesn’t goA bit of a handful down too well with the local Woman’s Lib Councillor, Augusta Prodworthy (June Whitfield).  Sid gets Peter Potter (Bernard Bresslaw) to publicise the contest and Peter comes up with all manner of stunts, which go awry, including entering himself as one of the contestants.   When Hope Springs (Barbara Windsor) appears on the scene, Sid’s sights fall on her but his girlfriend Connie Philpotts (Joan Sims) is having none of it.

This is a film of two halves where the Sid/Beauty contest half is kept separate from the feminist shenanigans of Augusta Prodworthy until right at the end.  The gags are more saucy and have tipped over the edge of seaside postcard humour into an un-Carry On-like crudeness.  The jokes are hammered home with a real force not before seen.  The production rate of the films is now reduced to just one a year and is obviously a mark of the decline of the series.
