Raucous frolics as a French Knight is captured and brought to captivity at a remote castle in England in order to be ransomed.


Includes the Carry On rendition of Greensleeves:

I loved a Knight who was brave and bold,
And he bought me a bracelet of shining gold,
But when it rained then its colour changed,
And now everyone's calling me Greensleeves.
Greensleeves they call me now,
Greensleeves and a stupid cow.
Thought it was chewing a holly bough,
But I found it was chewing my green sleeves.
