Best of British Films - 7

Blue Murder At St Trinian’s (1957)

Partially because of the appearance of Terry Thomas as Captain Romney Carlton-Ricketts, and the above-mentioned brilliant cast (not all of which appear in films 3 or 4), this is just an extremely funny film that will have you laughing from beginning to end. George Cole as dodgy salesman “Flash Harry” is hilarious. The plot runs along the lines of the Headmistress being jailed and the army / police called in to try to keep order in the school – some hope of that… On the other hand, a rich Italian playboy has designs on marrying one of the schoolgirls… but perhaps that’s because he hasn’t actually met any of them yet?!? (In my top ten cmoedies, I may have said I liked The Great St Trinian's Train Robery best, but on reflection it wasn't as good as the first two - still funny though.)
