Reviews

The jolly hockey sticks are being waved with malicious force once again by the mischievous girls of St Trinian's. After they burn their school down, the girls are sent to the Middle East, where an Arab sheik tries to lure them into his harem. Flash Harry (George Cole) attempts to come to the rescue, only to find himself stranded on a desert island with a familiar member of the constabulary (Joyce Grenfell).

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2008
Format: DVD
This is better than 3 stars for me (though not quite 4), and generally maintains the standard set by the previous two films. At the start of the film the school has been burnt down and the pupils are brought to trial. A lovely sequence follows in which the Judge is continually distracted by one of the rather good-looking 6th formers! Because of this and thanks to a scam devised by Flash Harry (George Cole) the pupils are basically let off. Sadly the film doesn't quite maintain the standard of comedy set in this opening section.

The cast is mostly good with John LeMesurier turning up as the Minister of Education and Sid James as the backer of the new school (to be built). Irene Handl, Dennis Price and of course Joyce Grenfell also feature, along with a large cast of schoolgirls. The recurring joke through the film is the numerous people who put on some relaxing music and dance to it to relieve the stress of trying to deal with St Trinians problems. This is quite surreal and almost Pythonesq.

This is well worth buying (unlike the final film in the series), and can be purchased as part of a 4 disc set, which is also strongly recommended.

I have always loved the original St. Trinians Movies so as far as I am concerned this is a classic.

The Pure Hell of St Trinians 15 Feb. 2012
By mary hildebrandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A|s a child of 8 I was sent to a small boarding school, no day girls ! We didn't learn anything much but we certainly lived the life of St Trinians and the books were considered essential reading and provided a source of what we could get up to next, ie smoking and drinking. St Custards also provided fodder for those of us who considered the opposite sex an essential part of life. Unfortunately, we were barred from having such contacts but every effort was made to do so - use your imagination ! Great films with great memories of a very happy and naughty school life.
Not as good as Belles of St Trinian's. 28 July 2014
By Graves - Published on Amazon.com
Pure Hell of St Trinian's. I'm not sure if this describes the lives of the bureaucrats dealing with the infamous girls' school or people who had to sit through the 2nd half of this disappointment.

Based on the cartoons of Ronald Searle and the earlier, much better movie with Alastair Sim as head mistress this film tries to follow through with the same joi de vie but misses the mark.

It starts with the entire student body being put on trial for burning down the school on a night when none of the teachers are present or ever seen again but as various police, shop keepers and education ministers are celebrating the demise of the hated and feared school a doctor steps forward and pleads for the chance to reform these innocent children led astray by bad teachers. Up to this bit the film is up to snuff as its predecessor "The Belles of St. Trinian's" but it goes downhill fast from this point.

It seems the new teacher is the agent of an Arab sheik looking for brides for his sons and the girls of the Upper 6th form are just what they need. So an arranged cultural trip to the Greek islands gets very off course and so does the plot. From this point on the school girls pretty much become a maguffin in their own film as various British forces of Police, Army and ministry of education try to get them back without raising a fuss.

Joyce Grenfell and George Cole reprise their roles from the earlier film as a local police Sargent and Flash Harry looking out for the girls. But the film centers on them and not the girls themselves. Sid James listed as `guest star' appears in all of 4 scenes and only talks in 2 of them. He disappears without any explanation and one wishes that fate could have befallen the film.

It's not that it is a bad film or that it fails to be funny BUT after the previous St. Trinian's film where the girls and their plans took center place, here they are the numinous object, like the Maltese Falcon that everyone is working towards and are not in control of their fate. The original was brilliant, this is...well..a weak sister.

Good british humor 22 Aug. 2010

I really like the St. Trinians movies and this doesn't disappoint. It's dark humor at it's best.
Honestly! We were not that bad! 12 Aug. 2005

As an "Old Girl" from a not-quite-so-similar school, back in the good old days of Gym Slips, White Blouses and Black wool stockings, I must admit that we were always up to something... we were not quite that outrageous...but, in a way I am sure that our Head thought we were. Though the entire cast of this film is extraordinarily exagerated...they all bring a faint sprinkle of reality and a giggle of happy memories..Long Live St. Trinians!!
