Ah yes, Rogers gave a pre-emptive response to try to avoid being sued for copyright infringement, which either inexplicably worked or the estate chose not to pursue potential legal action for their own reasons (hard to know which side would have won). In many ways he was responding to his own actions for having blatantly spoofed 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' in the first place.

It was highly unusual for the Carry Ons to feature someone who wasn't British and actually from the country the film was set in. No-one from Egypt or Italy featured in 'Carry On Cleo', 'Carry On Cowboy' was devoid of Americans, no-one from Morocco was in 'Carry On Follow That Camel', again no-one from Afghanistan/Pakistan was in 'Carry On Up the Khyber', the French character Emmannuelle was played by an Englishwoman in 'Carry On Emmannuelle', In fact, the only member of the cast not from the UK but from 'Abroad' in 'Carry On Abroad' was Sid James. I can't think of another case in which a female character from a foreign country in a 'Carry On' film is played by an actress actually from that country (even 'Carry On Behind''s Russian archaeologist is played by a German actress).
