"Prepare for six of the best as the Carry On team cause chaos in the school yard.
When a well-loved headmaster decides to retire, his scheming pupils have other ideas.
The cunning boys unleash a campaign of practical jokes, armed with gin, itching powder and bombs! No-one is safe from the classroom havoc in this Carry On starring all the regulars, including immortal Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jacques, Kenneth Connor and Joan Sims."
William Wakefield is not a
happy headmaster. His plans to move to another school are continually
thwarted by his devoted pupils. Wakefield does not realise how popular he is
with his students, who resort to lacing the staff tea with alcohol and
filling his study with itching powder; just some of the many stunts they
pull to try and get him to stay. But when he finds out, will he want to?
one of the great Carry Ons. Maybe I'm just jaded by all those St Trinians
films, but this doesn't really feel like part of the series we all know and
love; the jokes are all standard fare and there's generally nothing new on
offer. Nevertheless, the cast put in sterling performances, notably Ted Ray
who would have made an entertaining addition to the team.
