Carry On Cabby (1963) *

With Norman Hudis off to Hollywood, the producers co-opted an unrelated script called Call Me A Cab and welcomed Talbot Rothwell to the fold. Rothwell is probably the single most important factor in creating what we now think of as the Carry On style, which is why this script, not written for the series, plays far more typically than most of those that preceded it. Jim Dale looks in for the first time, and Liz Fraser for the last until her reappearance, batting for the shrews, in 1975’s Carry On Behind. First of very, very few entries in the series not to feature Kenneth Williams.
