Don't Lose Your Head

1966 British comedy film about the French revolution. Stars Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Jim Dale, Charles Hawtrey, Peter Butterworth and others.


With a switch between distributors and a change in visual style to the films, it was felt at the time of production that Don't Lose Your Head could stand up without the Carry On prefix to the title, and released accordingly. However, it - and the next film in the series, Follow That Camel - was not particularly successful at the box office, and promotional materials were hastily reproduced and both films reissued under the Carry On banner.
