Carry On Spying (1964, Bernard Cribbins, Barbara Windsor)



When the dastardly organisation STENCH (Society for the Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans) steals a top secret chemical formula, it’s clear the British secret service must do something – and quick. Unfortunately, their sole available resource is Agent Desmond Simpkins (Kenneth Williams) and his bumbling trainees Crump (Bernard Cribbins), Bind (Charles Hawtrey) and Honeybutt (Barbara Windsor, making her Carry On debut).

Nevertheless, the country’s finest (available) are soon in hot pursuit of the terrorists, on a trail that will take them as far afield as Austria and Algeria. The only thing that stands between them and success is their incompetence. Gerald Thomas’s spy spoof also stars Jim Dale and Eric Barker.
