    From acclaimed director Frank Launder ‘The Happiest Days of Your Life’ is a precursor to the hugely successful St. Trinian’s series set in Nutbourn College the most established and respectable of boy’s schools. A military mistake billets a girls’ school to share the college’s premises to the outrage of their horrified headmaster and headmistress played with comic mastery by Alastair Sim and Margaret Rutherford.

  • School For Scoundrels [DVD] School For Scoundrels | DVD | (05/10/2015) from £7.99  |  Saving you £10.00 (55.60%)  |  RRP £17.99

    In School for Scoundrels wimpy Ian Carmichael wants to impress girls and get one over on all-round show-off and cad Terry Thomas (playing gloriously to type). Discovering Alastair Simms' unorthodox school Carmichael happily enrols and learns the quaint tricks of the day for securing the admiration of a fair lady. Ultimately as a star pupil he teaches the Master a thing or two about true love when everything turns out just fine in the end. Appealing to all male sensibilities is the idea of a magical set of simple rules for winning someone's affections. Set in the tweed-rich environment of an English boarding school makes this an even quainter notion. To watch this classic comedy is to cock one's snoot at womanisers everywhere while unavoidably making a mental list of anything that might actually work! The three central performances are brilliantly realised, particularly the role reversal between Carmichael and Thomas. Try playing a tennis match after a viewing without calling "hard cheese". -Paul Tonks
