"School for unclaimed girls" is the American title for Robert Hartford Davis' film "The Smashing Bird I Used To Know".
Who is Robert H. Davis? The sleazy director behind films like "The Yellow Teddy Bears", "Corruption", "Incense for the Damned" & "The Fiend"...all unsung British exploitation films.
A dvd release of this film is long overdue, but why the American print? This is a British film, instead of getting the British release with the original title, the dvd bears the US title.
This bare bones release has the US trailer & a few stills...that's it.
Maureen Lipman appeared on "Room 101" & wanted this film put there. Unfair Maureen, because you give an excellent performance & the film really is not that bad. Hartford Davis was one of the few Brits making films in the 70's, his lurid & potent efforts are distinct from Hammer, Amicus or Tigon product & are ripe for rediscovery. Of course they never will be "rediscovered" because Hartford Davis is long dead & his films are deemed too obscure for dvd boxsets.
Robert Hartford Davis made distinctive films, this is one of them.
