New St. Trinian's Movie

More comics-turned-into-movies news.

When they first skipped mischievously across the screen in 1954, the cigarette-smoking, suspender-wearing, trouble-making pupils of St Trinian's annihilated the long-held belief that girls were made of sugar and spice and all things nice.

Now, 53 years on, the young ladies are returning to the big screen in a £7 million adaptation of cartoonist Ronald Searle's hilarious tales of mischief and japery.

Some of the bad girls of St. Trinian's. More photos from MSN Movies site.

Big hat tip to THE BEAT!

A 3 part essay, with tons of movies photos and drawings, about St. Trinian's at the Searle blog. For some reason, I cannot find "St. Trinian's Part 1" or "St. Trinian's Part 2," but here is St. Trinian's Part 3.
