Carry On Follow That Camel (1967)

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.

Camber Sands near Rye in Sussex doubled for the Sahara Desert during filming. Shooting was stopped three times in two days because of snow!
