Carry On Dick (1974) *

Indecision is writ large on every frame of this superfluous historical, the final fling for Sid, Hattie and screenwriter Talbot Rothwell.
It’s never less than fun, but never more than disposable, and it attempts to avoid the winds of change by ignoring rather than confronting them, retreating back into fancy dress in the hope that it will make Confessions of a Window Cleaner go away. It's basically Dick Turpin, though the plot is lifted from Dr Syn, and the confidence of Henry is just not there, though Windsor still gamely bursts out of her top while bell-ringing, and Williams says "I wouldn't fancy a poke with that!" when Joan Sims goes by carrying a sword.
