5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedies worth every penny, 21 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: The St Trinians Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This box-set is a must for fans of classic British comedies. It features the legendary Alastair Sim and that wheeler dealer George Cole, known to most for his Arthur Daley character in 'Minder'. I was not alive when these films were made and can't relate to much of 1950s-60s Britain but growing up in the 1980s I always looked forward to TV airings of the St. Trinians movies, and so I bought these to relive those moments. I was not disappointed.

There are 4 movies on offer; three 1950s films in black and white (The Belles of St. Trinians, The Pure of Hell of St. Trinians and Blue Murder at St Trinians) and one made in the 1960s ('The Great St. Trinians Train Robbery') in colour. The best one has to be 'The Pure of Hell of St Trinians' and the other two black and white ones are close behind. 'The Great Train Robbery' is the weakest but still a very enjoyable film.

There are no subtitles or extras but the picture quality is excellent, and at £13 it is an absolute bargain so I recommend it very highly.
