The orderly suburban life of a 1950’s English town is turned on its head when 17-year-old Jo Halliday (Julia Lockwood) writes a steamy bestseller called Naked Revolt, featuring characters obviously based on the local population.
In Jo’s book, her accountant father (Ted Ray) becomes an embezzler and a sugar daddy to his secretary (Dilys Laye), her mother (Jean Kent) is having an affair with a retired military officer who is a family friend (Lionel Jeffries) and her lovelorn aunt (June Jago) is pining for her employer, a doctor who carries on with all his women patients (Leslie Phillips).
Produced by Peter Rogers and directed by Gerald Thomas, the legendary duo responsible for the Carry On series, Please Turn Over also featured familiar comedic actors Colin Gordon, Charles Hawtrey (pictured at right), Ronald Adam and Joan Hickson.
Joan Sims is a riot as the working class cleaner who becomes a French maid in the book.
