Synopsis

Good dress codeSTENCH villains like Dr Crow, The Milchman and The Fat Man meet their match when they come face to face with Agent Simpkins (Kenneth Williams) – codename Red Admiral and three trainee agents, Harold Crump (Bernard Cribbins) – codename Blue Bottle, Daphne Honeybutt (Barbara Windsor – in her first Carry On) – codename Brown Cow anNice hairdod Charlie Bind (Charles Hawtrey) – codename Yellow Peril, also known as agent 00 Oh.

This a funny spy spoof which leads from Vienna to the Casbah and ends up at STENCH (Society for the Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans) headquarters.  Along the way the agents find their contact information from Carstairs, ‘Our Man In Vienna’ (Jim Dale) who wears several disguises to contact the agents including a blind match seller and a prostitute.  Barbara Windsor is very good in her debut appearance and is by far the best agent with her photographic memory and ability to withstand torture even though her male colleagues all try to protect her.

All the typical agent accessories are brought into play while the agents are on the track of a stolen formula, including a briefcase full of false papers and concealed radios in any form you can imaging including a brassiere, and disguised entrances to top secret bases.

Dilys Laye also gives a good performance as a sexy nightclub singer at the Café Mozart.
