| Why did the BFI chose this title?
The BFI have many unseen gems in their archive.Two of them,The Mayors Nest and Give Me A Ring are currently available to view at their Mediatheque on the South Bank.It is therefore a mystery why they should choose this painfully unfunny farce as worthy of a digital remastering and release.It is a very poor imitation of the St Trinian films.Emney even dresses up in drag as of course did Alastair Sim.There is someone dressed as a Teddyboy substitute Freddy Mills for George Cole,and rowdy boys instead of girls and a MOE school inspector.The casting of Freddie Mills should tell you everything about the film.He was a world champion boxer who became a personality.He appeared in some films for a couple of scenes.However in this film he appears in a large role which he simply cannot carry.The script is awful and there is not one laugh in the whole film.whilst it is interesting to see a very young Ronnie Corbett and Gerald Campion who played Billy Bunter on TV this cannot make up for the utter boredom experienced when trying to watch all 80 minutes of this film.Seriously BFI lets have some worthwhile films from the archive instead of this dross.
