Alastair Sim’s School for Laughter: 4 Classic Comedies 04/25/20

Film Movement Classics

Step aside Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers — the king of droll Brit comedy comes through with four, count ’em 4, on target laugh-getters. Alastair Sim cornered the business for sneaky crime, dirty tricks and nasty con-games, when he isn’t being flummoxed by the worst thing Britain ever loosed upon the world — boarding school girls. Read ’em and shudder: The Belles Of St. Trinian’s, School For Scoundrels, Laughter In Paradise, and the first ‘official’ Ealing comedy Hue And Cry. Reviewer Charlie Largent recommends these highly. On Blu-ray from Film Movement Classics.
