5.0 out of 5 stars British comedy character acting at it's best, 21 Mar 2010
By 
This review is from: The St Trinians Collection (4 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Being currently confined to my flat with a broken arm, I bought this 4 dvd set to cheer myself up - and it has certainly worked. These films are little gems of British silly comedy; funny, cute, slightly wicked (and, these days, very un-PC, although certainly Girl Power is very evident) with some lovely character acting, Alastair Sym of course as the Headmistress (and indeed her disreputable brother Clarence), Irene Handle (I loved her in Blue Murder at StTrinian's) as the dotty Headmistress, George Cole, etc etc etc and of course the girls themselves (the little ones very funny). There is so much to enjoy in these movies, with their now period charm, but the humour is still very enjoyable. Even the Ronald Searle drawings for the credits are very good and you should watch out for them (and I now know the words of the St Trinian's School Song - "trample on the weakest, glory in their plight..." !!!!) This is very English humour and I think either you love it or you don't. The whole set of films is very worth it.
