The Belles of St Trinians (1954)

The Belles of St Trinians alt poster.jpg

Thoroughly delightful adaptation of Ronald Searle’s anarchic schoolgirls by Launder and Gilliat with some help from Val Valentine. Glorious acting in drag by Alastair Sim as the headmistress  AND her gambler brother with a moneymaking scheme dreamed up by several parties upon the arrival of an Arab Princess whose Sultan father has a horse in the Gold Cup. Great fun, with an amazing cast amongst whom Joyce Grenfell and George Cole are standouts.
