Carry on Behind

Synopsis: Professors Vooshka and Crump decide to visit an archaeological site to study the artifacts there. Lo and behold, it's right next to a caravan site where all manner of people are staying. With a randy Major owning the site, a snobbish mother, and the two professors' constant innuendos, the film ends with a sinking caravan site and a striptease performance as a replacement for the cabaret night.
Genre: Comedy
Director(s): Gerald Thomas
Production: J. Arthur Rank Productions

when you get down there.

Professor Vooshka

is an expert on Roman remains.

Yes, I have been examining Hadrian's Walls.

- He only had one.

- One what?

Wall - Hadrian's Wall. He had one wall.

Oh, I'm terribly sorry

but my English not yet perfected.

- Oh, that's all right.

- I'm glad you two are hitting it off.

What does "hitting it off" mean?

Means like "having it off", no?

No, it means establishing a friendly relationship.

Oh. That's nice. Yes.

- Look after everything, will you, Crump?

- Of course.

I'll send you a party of students

to help with the dig. Good luck.

Thank you, Dean.

And no worry. Professor Crump and I

will soon be having it off.

Hitting it off.

40p. I'll save you a bit of the other.

- Hello, Else.

- Hello, love. Give us a bit of that for my old man.

Give that to your husband

and you're in for a night of romance.

Ooh! Can I do it in the oven?

Do it where you like. It's your kitchen.


90p and the next lovely lady, please.

Thank you.

- Where are you going?

- On one of those health farms.

Oh. What about Fred?

- He's taking the caravan. He's off fishing.

- On his own?

No, with Ernie Bragg.

- Oh, Bragg up the electrical shop.

- Yes, that's right.

What about Ernie's wife?

She's coming with me.

Talking of Ernie,

when is he coming about that fridge?

What do you mean?

He came when you nipped out for a pint.

He's in there.

Oh, no! I've shut the door on him!


Are you all right?

(Ernie groans)

Oh, my God!

It's only a sleeve.


(Continues to mumble)

I- I-I-I got the f-f-f-fridge w-w-w-working.

Aye. You have, haven't you?

I- I-I-I knew it was w-w-w-working

when I f-f-f-felt it f-f-f-falling off.

- Felt what falling off?

- My di-di-di... temperature.
