When Sergeant Bilko was demobbed, Phil Silvers came to England to play Sergeant Nocker of the Foreign Legion in this high-spirited satire of adventure epics.
Unjustly accused of being a cheat, Beau West joins the French Foreign Legion where he immediately falls foul of the obnoxious Sergeant Nocker and Sheikh Abdul Abulbul.
Not originally a Carry On film, that title was added almost at the end of production, and didn’t even appear in the finished product.
Nevertheless, with Kenneth Williams (“there’s many a good fiddle played on an old dune”) and company in attendance, the film is a classic of the series.
