Goofs

When Harry is in the signal box to stop the robber's train he pulls a lever back toward him and we then see the signal drop to danger. After the girls have uncoupled the wagon, he pushes the lever forward again and the signal returns to clear. These actions are the wrong way round. Signal levers are pulled back to raise the signal to clear, pushed forward again to return to danger. See more »

Quotes

Alphonse of Monte Carlo: [about his two daughters education] The poor lambs were only receiving the three R's, so to speak.
Amber Spottiswood: Well it's always nice to have your R's to fall back on I always say.

So So Last Film In The Original Series
16 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

The premise doesn't seem bad, that the school is relocated due to the fires and a group of thieves want to recover money hidden in the place where the new school is. However, it doesn't feel like a St. Trinian's film to me. Its the only one in color and of the characters from the other films only Harry is still there. There is no more Sargeant Gates, which would have helped. The movie goes along at a decent pace and Frankie Howerd is, of course, a good comic actor, but the film is watchable only because its part of the series not because it is such a great stand alone film. See it if you want to complete your watching of the original St. Trinian's films, but otherwise it is not essential viewing.
