The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery is one of my all-time favourite films. An absolutely brilliant comedy caper, truly the best of British. As a keen railway enthusiast and lover of trains, I ADORE it. This is a film that cleverly blended the magic of steam with the spirit of wild, uncontrollable, rebellious school kids, wonderful humour and slapstick, the story of a cracking train heist and the old good-natured honest notion of `It's alright to be bent."

Train Robbery was the fourth and final chapter of the original series of St. Trinian's films, and I do NOT understand at all why fellow Amazon reviewers rank this film so lowly. While I admit I have yet to see any of the previous films (and look forward to doing so), I think it's very unfair to judge this so harshly SOLELY by comparing it to the others. Whether or not they were superior, I do not know, but that is irrelevant when one should be reviewing Train Robbery's individual merits.

The story is simple; The headmistress of St. Trinian's (wonderfully played by Dora Bryan) is the lover of the corrupt Minister of Schools. Now armed with a great big government grant, she re-houses her staff and pupils in a great big house, Hamingwell Grange. Unbeknownst to the school, a great circle of train robbers - headed by the anonymous `Governor' with Frankie Howerd as his second-in-command - have stashed £2.5 million under the ballroom stage. Before long, a great big battle of wits ensues as a chase for all the swag is on.

The simplicity of the film is beauty itself. In both presentation and execution, Train Robbery is an absolute charm, sporting a colourful cast of characters, top-notch comedy antics and cracking dialogue.

Probably the weakest of the superb Frank Launder & Sidney Gilliat 'St Trinians' film series and actually not helped by being in colour. That said, it's by no means unwatchable, and can raise a few titters. Made a few years after the real Great Train Robbery, the films plot revolves around the schoolgirl's trying to foil an attempt by train robbers to recover two and a half million pounds hidden in their school - surely though it's the girls who should be the criminal masterminds, although this lot wouldn't last 5 minutes against their older schoolmates from the original movie. While the first, far darker film 'The Belles of St Trinians' [1954], with Alistair Sims, Joyce Grenfell & George Cole, is essential viewing, this final outing is more in the 'carry on' mould - although it's none the worse for that and does have a real period charm. Sadly Alistair Sims declined to continue his headmistress role in the sequel Blue Murder at St Trinians [1956] other than a short cameo, although this is made up for by the inclusion of the superbly caddish Terry Thomas.

The St Trinians films are based on the 1940/50s dark (but very funny) cartoons of Ronald Searle, which were themselves inspired by Edinburgh's real St Trinneans School [1920] where discipline was encouraged to be self rather than school imposed - leading to the jibe that the girls were taught to do whatever they want. Searle met a few former pupils during the war and the cartoons evolved from his jokes with them (The real school closed in 1946 when the headmistress retired). For the original Searle cartoons, see the book St. Trinian's: The Entire Appalling Business.

The fourth St Trinians film and the first to be made in colour, this one provides plenty of laughs from a smorgasbord of much loved British comedians. Some fans of the series have had reservations about this one that does not have the emblematic Alastair Sim as the corrupt headmistress of St Trinians. In this one Dora Bryan takes over as Amber Spottiswood who has a similar rather relaaxed attitude to schooling as her esteemed predecessor. Bryan in fact makes a very good fist of things, and it is easy to forget what a fine comedienne she was! The film retains George Cole, Richard Wattis, Eric Barker, Michael Ripper and Raymond Huntley from the original cast members. Add those comic galacticos Frankie Howard, Reg Varney and Terry Scott and you have a very nice mix indeed.

This time the plot uses a `Great Train Robbery' type crime to good comic effect. The rather inept bandits decide to hide their loot in an abandoned building. Unfortunately for them it is to become the new home of St Trinians School. Robbers...be afraid....be very afraid! The film has a lovely sixties look to it, which I guess is unsurprising as it was made in 1966! A very good year I recall! There are bucket loads of fun to be had and the usual sixth formers dressed to fulfil any schoolboys fantasy. The lovely railway scenes at the films conclusion are a particular highlight. These were filmed on the Longmoor Military Railway, closed since 1969. How nice to see those old steam trains strutting their stuff! A hugely enjoyable addition to the series!
