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.Read more ›
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  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.Read more ›
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!

The fourth part of the St. Trinian's themed films is the first to be shot in colour, and also the point where someone should have realised that this series had run out of steam. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Spike Owen
