Synopsis:
Frankie Howerd reprises his role from the much-loved British TV series Up Pompell, in a feature length film version that proved as enduring as the Carry On series its humour so closely resembles. The Roman Empire is at its height, and the citizens of Pompeii spend all the time enjoying themselves - except for the slaves, that is, including Lurico (Howerd), who is busy preparing an orgy for his master Ludicrus (Michael Horden). While at the market to buy food and women for festivities, Lurcio accidentally picks up a scroll instead of a cucumber, which has the names of an assassination on the life of Emperor Nero (Patrick Cargill) written on it....
Also know as Naughty Nights, Up The Chastity Belt is an uproarious and racy follow-up to Up Pompeii. The Queen of England gives birth to twins (both played by Howerd), one of whom, Lurkalot, is cast out and brought up by pigs. He becomes a servant to Sir Coward De Custard, making a nice little living on the side selling chastity belts. Alongside the stalwarts of raucous 70s British comedy (Roy Hudd, Lance Percival) a surprisingly stellar cast including Anna Quayle and Eartha Kitt provide the perfect foil for star Howerd's saucy double entendres. As befitting the period, the medieval adventures are punctuated by ample displays of female flesh.
