Synopsis

Stop messin aboutThis was the first in a new line for the Carry Ons, period costume historical comedies.  The frigate Venus of the British Navy is their target but only a few of the regular cast members signed on board.  Captain Fearless (Kenneth Williams), cesspit cleaner, Walter (Charles Hawtrey) and a brief appearance by a sedan chair carrier (Jim Dale) – in a very funny scene where Albert gets in to a sedan chair with no bottom and so has to run along inside to get to his destination, - are the only regular faces you will see.

Albert Poop-Decker (Bernard Cribbins) is the main character of the film along with Sally (Juliet Mills), who steals his uniform and masqueradeCarry On Jacks as him to be taken on as part of the crew.    With pirates on the high seas and the Spanish fleet threatening war, there is Carry On action aplenty.

Following a mock mutiny, Captain Fearless is cast adrift in a small boat with Albert, Sally and Walter.  After almost dying of thirst and deciding who they were going to eat first, Albert bravely decides to swim for help and jumps over the side to find himself in water six inches deep proving one of the film’s biggest laughs.  Victory is won by the Venus, when Walter heats some water and accidently sets the frigate on fire, causing a chain reaction which finds the castaways heroes of a battle they didn’t know they were fighting.
