Directed by
Gerald Thomas

Gerald Thomas's war-of-the-sexes comedy concerns an on-going battle between two rival taxi companies run by a feuding husband and wife. When her husband Charlie Hawkins neglects to celebrate their wedding anniversary, Peggy takes revenge by secretly setting up her own cab business. Entirely female-staffed, Peggy's GlamCabs soon finds favour with the lecherous local male clientele and quickly inflicts a serious financial blow to Charlie's Speedee Taxis empire. However, Peggy's victory is a pyrrhic one, only serving to push the couple further apart. But a bank robbery is set to provide the couple with a chance for reconciliation... Kenneth Williams was missing from the cast this time round, but the film features Carry On debuts for Jim Dale and writer Talbot Rothwell, who would provide scripts for the next 19 editions of the series.
