01 Feb Blue Murder at St. Trinian’s (1957)
This is remarkable stuff. It has the normal amount of silliness, but the discriminating thing with this series is the notion of the girls school.
Its absolutely amazing, what they have done with this notion. The school is a girls’ school that destroys every location it visits. Lots of jokes: newspapers reports that Paris is scandalised by these girls.
The idea is that half of these “girls” are adult women win miniskirts with stockings and girders. Most of the scandalous behaviour (which we never see) is supposed to be sexual in nature. Oh, there’s a plot about stolen jewels and a prince seeking a bride. But the story is purely there as an excuse to parade these girls around.
And these are tough broads. They beat people up.
