Who would want to meet these little uncontrolable 4th.form charmers from the world famous school,I'd call it "THE PURE HELL of ST.TRINIAN'S"(1960).

A Bucket of whitewash is nothing to what they really get up to-thank goodness it's all fictional of the goings- on at the girls boarding school created by cartoonist,RONALD SEARLE.

Known as the 'Female Borstal' the movies began in 1954,and so far 6 have been made in the series.

I shot this at Shepperton studios during a 'take' on filming 'Pure Hell...'
..stand well away from these little brats...

Great. What a bunch of little monsters. I just wonder if the 'new' St Trinians film is as good. I'll bet they've concentrated on acres of black-stockinged legs instead of what Searle intended -- uncontrolled mischievous mayhem. I have to admit I wouldn't complain too loudly but a combination of both would be ideal. Well done H. And thanks...

You are right,Vic.
The latest produced a few years ago,wasn't anything like the 'original' back in 1954.The critics gave it the thumbs down..yet they are talking about making part 2 & 3 to cash in on 'updating' it to the 21st.Century..

...which means it's rubbish.
