Another rip-roaring farce set among the uninhibited pupils of this particularly unorthodox school. The Sultan of Makyad decides to send his favorite daughter to an English school and chooses St Trinian’s because it is conveniently close to the stables where his racehorses are trained.
But, complications develop when Arabella, leader of the ‘Sixth Form Gang’ at the school, is encouraged by her bookmaker father to kidnap the Sultan’s prize thoroughbred! Alastair Sim gives a winning performance in his dual role as the headmistress and her bookie brother!
“The Belles of St. Trinian’s” stars Alastair Sim and Joyce Grenfell (1954).
VisionTV’s Executive Producer Moses Znaimer dug deep in the vault of movies past to find these delicious, rip-roaring gems based on the comics of Ronald Searle, that he recalled from his youth in Montréal where they were broadcast every Boxing Day.
Now they’re a Vision tradition you won’t see anywhere else on TV!
