It is the 22nd installment in the long-running Carry On series and features a star-studded cast including Frankie Howerd, Sidney James, and Charles Hawtrey. The film is set in the lush and exotic jungles of South America, where the British Consul Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond (Sidney James) leads a team of bumbling adventurers on a quest to find the fabled and valuable Oozlum bird. Along the way, they encounter a host of colorful characters, including cannibals, a tribe of topless women, and a voluptuous jungle queen, played by Valerie Leon.
