The first 'Carry On' film...
This is not entirely played for laughs...an interesting, cross-class look at National Service.
Interesting to see how the idea evolved and deteriorated throughout the years.
Still, a thoroughly British institution.
Sergeant Grimshaw wants to retire in the flush of success by winning the Star Squad prize with his very last platoon of newly called-up National Servicemen. But what a motley bunch they turn out to be, and it's up to Grimshaw to put the no-hopers through their paces.
