Carry on Loving

Trivia: Charles Hawtrey initially turned down the role of James Bedsop because producer Peter Rogers said that Hawtrey should not have third billing due to the size of Hattie Jacques' part, and his part being small. But in the end, Rogers relented.


Trivia: Before Sidney Bliss enters the lift to go to Esme Crowfoot's flat, he sees a couple kissing and asks, "All right?" The original line in the script was "Going up?", but was changed in post-production as the producers felt it was too risqué even for a Carry On film.

Trivia: The cream used during the food fight sequence towards the end of the film was real. Jacki Piper actually suffered an ear ache when Joan Sims smashed a cream pie into the side of her face.

Trivia: The matchmaking computer at the Wedded Bliss Agency was a prop from the TV series "UFO."

Trivia: Due to a matinee, Richard O'Callaghan was not able to do the food fight sequence towards the end of the film and therefore his close-up was edited in later.

Trivia: A scene where Mr Roxby and his wife talk to Mr Snooper at the Citizens' Advice Bureau about their marital problems was deleted from the final print, although you can still see the back of Mr Roxby when Mr Snooper opens his office door and Mrs Bliss walks in.

Continuity mistake: When the man puts jelly down his wife's dress during the food fight, Jenny Grubb's arm is not on the table. In the next scene, her arm is resting on the table, but in the scene after that, her arm is back in its normal position.
