Looking for "The Happy Years"
I saw "The Happy Years" when I was in high school in the early 1960s and have long wanted to see it again. Does anyone know whether there is a video or DVD of it and how one might get a copy? I can't find it on Netflix or Ebay.

Strangely, I remember it as a black and white film, though it obviously is not. I also recall seeing an English film of a similar sort with Margaret Rutherford which was about a boy's school and a girl's school unhappily forced to share the same quarters. Can anyone identify that film for me?

Finally, as a new member here, I am perplexed by the requirement that comments be a minimum of ten lines. I thought that this was not just for giving one's opinion about films, but also for posing questions and hoping for response from others. That doesn't necessarily require ten lines. But I shall rattle on until the ten-line requirement is met.
