Carry On Cabby

Audio problem: When Sarge is giving instructions to Allbright over the taxi radio Allbright replies "I don't know what the union's going to say about all this" to which Sarge replies "**** the union". His mouth doesn't open while the noise sounds to cover up his swear word.

Audio problem: When the robber driving the hijacked taxi turns on to the grass, when he realises he is surrounded by the speedy cabs the tyres squeal, even though he is driving on an unmade road.

Other mistake: When the villains arrive outside Glamcabs yard, to wait for Hattie Jacques as she drives to the bank, watch the driver of their Jag. He somehow changes from a forward gear to reverse, without taking his hands off the steering wheel.

Trivia: This Carry on film (carry on cabby) was firstly called Call me a cab.

Trivia: In the scene where Charles Hawtry is training to drive the taxi, it has L plates on. These are real, as after he got the part Hawtry told the producers that he didn't have a driving licence. He had to apply for one and was given a few driving lessons in Pinewood Studios car park to learn the basics for this scene. This is why you don't see him do much taxi driving in the film.

Trivia: Kenneth Williams was originally offered the role of Albright, but turned it down due to an inferior script. This was the first "Carry On" film not to feature Williams since the series began in 1958.


Terry 'Pintpot' Tankard: Are you the boss or something?
Ted Watson: I'm what they call the something manager. My advice to you is to be off.
Terry 'Pintpot' Tankard: You mean buzz off?
Ted Watson: No, but you're getting warm.

Charlie Hawkins: When you get to be a cab driver you cut yourself right off from the rest of the human race. Everybody's got it in for you and nobody loves you. In no time at all you find that you're about as popular as a wickerwork seat in a nudist camp, and you know what sort of impression that makes on people.
