      StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 26 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/21/23 Full Review bill t Just a little monotonous. The jokes were surprisingly far and few between this time, Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The third Carry On film, following on immediately from the successes of Carry On Sergeant (1958) and Carry On Nurse (1958), the series was starting to gain momentum, and for the third film, producer Peter Rogers, writer Norman Hudis and director Gerald Thomas decided to lampoon the formalities of the education system. It's a good little comedy, but still innocent compared to what was to come. Set at Maudlin Street Secondary Modern School, the headmaster William Wakefield (Ted Ray) has been there for 20 years, but he has seen an advert looking for a head of a brand new school which he applies for. But first, he has to oversee a Ministry of Education Inspector Felicity Wheeler (Rosalind Knight) and child psychologist Alistair Grigg (Leslie Phillips). Wakefield tells the teachers, including English teacher Edwin Milton (Kenneth Williams), music teacher Michael Bean (Charles Hawtrey), Maths teacher Grace Short (Hattie Jacques) and P.E. teacher Sarah Allcock (Joan Sims) of his plans to leave, but the pupils have other ideas. It's a very silly film, but it's a Carry On film with a heart, even though this is a school where the antics of the pupils would make the pupils of St. Trinians look like saints, they're doing it because they don't like change. There are some funny pranks and antics, and it's a joy to see the regulars having fun and being good sports. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the better Carry On's reasonably well written and involves a visit from the school inspectors. Apparently Michael Gove's education policies are based on this and are just as comical. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable early Carry On with many of the original team and Ted Ray as the headmaster. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review simon d Better than the previous two, let's hope that this momentum continues (as I'm going to watch them chronologically). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
