Synopsis

Collection of features starring the debonair British gentleman with a penchant for seaside-comedic gags and an eye for the ladies, Leslie Phillips. In 'Please Turn Over' (1959) a town is driven to insurrection when a local girl publishes a sexy novel with characters quite plainly lifted from among local personages, including her mum and dad! 'Watch Your Stern' (1960) is a navy lark featuring many of the 'Carry-On' crew in which a ship's steward convinces his admiral he is the brain behind a homing torpedo, but he finds himself in deep water. In 'No Kidding' (1960) a young couple inherits a large estate and decides to turn it into a kids' camp - to predictably riotous results. In 'Crooks Anonymous' (1962) a former lag trying to go straight joins a rehabilitation scheme using much the same methods as AA. Through the process, he takes work as a department store Santa, where the endless parade of goods and money, not to mention the pretty young shop hands have him like a moth to a flame in no time flat.
