"A hilarious romp through the bars and bedrooms of the Wild West with the Carry On gang!  Sid James is on top form as the Rumpo Kid, an outlaw who shakes up the sleepy residents of Stodge City.  Kenneth Williams is the puritanical judge, and Jim Dale plays Marshall P Knutt, a hapless plumber mistakenly sent to clean up the town.  This is classic Carry On with a cast of Carry On favourites, including Charles Hawtrey as fire-water guzzling Chief Big Heap, Joan Sims and Bernard Bresslaw."

The Story

Stodge City is being terrorised by outlaw The Rumpo Kid and his gang. The town's judge calls for a sheriff and, due to a case of mistaken identity, ends up with a sanitary engineer. With the help of Annie Oakley, Marshall Knutt takes on The Rumpo Kid...




Another great film, although not quite up to the standards set by the likes of Cleo or Convenience. The cast struggle bravely with an assortment of dodgy American accents, while indulging in all manner of gunplay and general sauciness. The film also marks Bernard Bresslaw's first appearance in the series. An ambitious film and one which is all the better for the fact that the producers really stretched themselves to make it.
