Carry On Cleo

Carry On Cleo (1964)

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Hengist and Horsa are watching a young cave couple dragging each other around. Hengist is pouring Horsa a drink and you can see him pour, raise the jug, then Horsa takes a sip from his cup. All this time it is patently obvious that no liquids are in the vessels.

Factual error: Towards the end of the film, the British slaves are escaping out of the window. As they rush over to the window, one man's costume flies up. Lovely pair of red underpants he's wearing.

Trivia: If the props and sets on 'Carry On Cleo' look to be unusually lavish, this is no surprise. They were not made for the movie. Producer Peter Rogers just seized the opportunity of re-cycling the props and sets from the famous Richard Burton/Liz Taylor movie (the very same movie that they were sending up, incidentally). The props and sets had been left behind at Pinewood Studios when production of the Burton/Taylor "Cleopatra" moved to Rome.

Trivia: Charles Hawtrey plays Seneca, father of Calpurnia (Joan Sims). In real life, Hawtrey was only 16 years older than Sims.
