Up The Chasity Belt Poster Original Daybill Frankie Howerd Carry On
Daybill Poster.Up the Chastity Belt (also released as Naughty Knights in the USA) is a 1971 British film, a spin-off from the TV series Up Pompeii! that starred Frankie Howerd (Carry On Doctor & Carry On Up The Jungle), Anne Aston and was directed by Bob Kellett. Howerd played dual roles as King Richard the Lionheart and cowardly peasant Lurkalot (his character in Up Pompeii was the slave Lurcio). The plot served as an excuse to serve up the usual collection of puns and double entendres that characterised most British film comedy in the 1970s, but did feature Eartha Kitt singing "A Knight for My Nights" and Hugh Paddick (of Julian and Sandy fame in the Round the Horne BBC radio series) as a notable Robin Hood, leader of a band of men who were camp homosexual rather than merry.
