Plot Synopsis:

Perhaps best remembered as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, Scottish character actor Alastair Sim became a leading star of British cinema after spending five years as a lecturer of elocution at the University of Edinburgh. One of the best-loved and most prolific actors in classic British comedy, Sim, who often appeared in multiple roles, starred in more than fifty films beginning in 1935 and was both critically acclaimed and unfailingly popular, regularly topping the cinema-goers popularity polls.

This February, a master class in comedy is in session with THE BELLES OF ST. TRINIAN'S, a beloved 1954 classic directed by Frank Launder (I See a Dark Stranger, The Blue Lagoon). The anarchic schoolgirls of St. Trinian's are more interested in men and mischief than homework and hockey, but even greater trouble beckons with the arrival of two new students: Princess Fatima of Makyad and the return of recently expelled Arabella Fritton, who has a kidnapping scheme on her mind Based on the cartoons of Ronald Searle, THE BELLES OF ST. TRINIAN'S is one of the most celebrated British comedies of all time, spanning several sequels and featuring the incomparable Alastair Sim in dual roles as headmistress Miss Millicent Fritton and her twin brother, Clarence.
