Sid James stars as the notorious outlaw Dick Turpin (more commonly referred to as Big Dick): the kindly rogue who is running rings around King George's Bow Street Runners. Can the half-witted Captain Desmond Fancey (Kenneth Williams), Sir Roger Daley (Bernard Bresslaw) and Sergeant Jock Strapp (Jack Douglas) succeed in bringing the wily highwayman to justice? The Carry On gang are having a ball in merrie olde England and everyone is invited.
How comedy has changed.
- Carry on Dick review by JD
I am old enough to remember most of the Carry On films when they first appeared. They were risque, but quintessentially British with all the usual double-entendres. Like Panto but ruder. I thought it would be fun to see some again. If you are of an age when you are feeling nostalgic about Carry On, leave it as a distant memory. If you are not, prepare to be amazed at what people used to laugh at 40 years ago
