Carry On Cowboy – 1965

In the eleventh of the successful film franchise the team turn their attentions to the wild west.  It sees the debut of some more of the better known regulars in Peter Butterworth, who would appear in sixteen films and Bernard Bresslaw who made fourteen appearances in the series.

It is believed to have been the favourite film in the series of both Sid James and Joan Sims.  Carry On Cowboy is the only time Sid James (who was South African by birth) uses an American accent, in all his other TV work and other appearances in the Carry On series he uses a cockney accent.
