Quotes

The Dean: The colonel claims that the boys couldn't answer the questions. Why couldn't they?
Dr. Benjamin Twist: Well, possibly he didn't ask them the right ones. When all's said and done, the boys can't answer questions for which they don't know the answers, can they?

Dr Twist is back

Will Hay returns as Dr Benjamin Twist who this time is the head of a errant school for boys.

Life is easy for Dr Twist, he bets with the boys on the races but gets rings run around him when it comes to trying to teach them anything. Into this comes Col Willougby-Gore ex Bengal Lancer and who is intent on ousting the "Incompetent" Dr Twist whom infuriates him.

Into this is a father of a pupil who is getting busted out of prison to go and steal the Mona Lisa for some French Hoods! Throw in a "contest" between schools (the outcome of which has Twists career in the balance) and a visit to Paris and got all the fuel you need for another classic Will Hay outing.

Graham Moffat stars again as Albert and a very small (in one scene) part for Charles Hawtrey as a snooty "swot" from another school who is outfoxed by the crafty Arthur
