A Cabbie Abroad - Carry On Cabby - Netflix
Carry On Cabby is the seventh in the series of Carry On films to be made. Released on 7th November 1963, it was the first to be written by Talbot Rothwell (although the first screenplay “Tolly” submitted to Peter Rogers was developed as Carry On Jack) from a story by Dick Hills and Sid Green (script writers for Morecambe and Wise). Regulars Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Kenneth Connor and Charles Hawtrey are all present. Liz Fraser makes her third appearance (although she'd have to wait 13 years for her next Carry On) and Esma Cannon makes her fourth and final appearance. This was the first film in the series to feature Carry On regular Jim Dale, and the first not to feature Kenneth Williams. Carry On Cabby was originally planned as a non-Carry On film, called Call Me A Cab (after a stage play) but midway through it became part of the Carry On series.
