DON'T LOSE YOUR HEAD
Aspect ratio: 1.66:1
Sound format: Mono
During the French Revolution, the villainous Citizen Camembert (a
perpetually outraged Kenneth Williams) goes in search of the notorious
'Black Fingernail' (Sid James), an unidentified British aristocrat
who's been crossing the English Channel to rescue his French
counterparts from the guillotine.
The second and final entry in the long-running series not to feature
'Carry On' in its title due to political fall-out from a change of UK
distributor (the first was FOLLOW THAT CAMEL, released earlier the same
year), DON'T LOSE YOUR HEAD demonstrates yet again that screenwriter
Talbot Rothwell was at his best when indulging his fondness for
historical burlesque. Sumptuously mounted on various high-blown
locations (including Clandon Park and Waddesdon Manor, with interiors
filmed at Pinewood Studios), the film's ribald parody of the French
Revolution encompasses everything from silly character names (Camembert
is the local 'big cheese', aided and abetted by the gormless Citizen
Bidet, while the Black Fingernail conceals his true identity under the
foppish pseudonym of Sir Rodney Ffing - "with two F's!") to puns, sight
gags and lowbrow slapstick. In other words, the formula as before.
But like so many of the better "Carry On"s, the comedy is rooted in a
well-developed storyline, augmented by the usual array of flamboyant
characters and eccentric supporting players. Highlights include Charles
Hawtrey as a jolly French aristocrat, and Joan Sims as Williams'
Cockney-spouting sister (Sims and Hawtrey share an unlikely seduction
sequence midway through the film which culminates in a terrific 'please
yourself' gag). Sid James and Jim Dale are the nominal heroes of the
piece, camping it up with affectionate glee, while Peter Butterworth
excels as Williams' dimwitted lackey, forever lusting after Sims and
shouting: "Equality! Fraternity! Liberty!" (to which Sims retorts: "I
don't care about the equalities and the fraternities, but I'm NOT
having the liberties!"). But as usual, Kenneth Williams walks away with
the picture, overplaying every gesture, emphasizing every double
entendre, and milking every gag for all its considerable worth. An
absolute comic gem! Director Gerald Thomas keeps the pot boiling
throughout, and production values are solid. Watch out for a couple of
mistakes which made it into the final print (Williams' hat being
knocked by Butterworth in a cramped carriage, and Sims almost falling
over whilst admiring a lovely new dress), betraying a rushed production
Favorite gag: Hawtrey brags to a group of young women that he escaped
the guillotine by slaying half a dozen of his captors, and one gushing
admirer declares: "What a bloody sight it must have been." Hawtrey,
quick as a flash, retorts: "M'dear, if me sword hadn't broken, it'd
have been a bloody sight more!" Genius.
