Revealing mistake: When our heroes are on the conveyor belt which carries the rocks towards the spinning saw blades, the rocks which get cut in two are seen to be cut before they reach the blades. (01:20:45)
Carry on Spying (1964)
Directed by: Gerald Thomas
Starring: Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Cribbins, Barbara Windsor
Continuity mistake: When Desmond and Charlie lure the doorman from the fun house, Desmond hits him with a copper pot and his fez falls off and lands in the middle of the doorway. In the next shot, from inside the building, the fez is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: Simkins finds the girl in his wardrobe in his room on the train. There are two jackets hanging up in the right hand side of the wardrobe - when he opens the wardrobe door again immediately the girl has gone but the jackets are still there. Harold Crump then enters Simkins' room - the wardrobe door is still open with no jackets visible, but when Simkins closes the wardrobe door there is only one jacket hanging up in there.
Trivia: This was the first Carry On to cast the fabulous Babs Windsor. Also the last to feature Bernard Cribbins until the making of Columbus in 1992.
Trivia: Albert R. Broccoli, the producer of the James Bond films, objected to the character name "Charlie Bind Agent 006 1/2". Producer Peter Rogers refused to change the name but dropped the agent's code number.
Trivia: The final "Carry On" film shot in black and white.
Doctor Crow: I am Doctor Crow. You are surprised?
Daphne Honeybutt aka Agent Brown Cow: Yes, I am! I expected you to be a man... or a woman.
Desmond Simpkins: Oh, Vienna! Lovely! I've always wanted to see Vienna before I die.
The Chief: With a bit of luck, you'll do both.
