Plot Synopsis

Blue Murder at St. Trinian's

Further adventures of the demon schoolgirls, now grown up into, well, big schoolgirls. The infamous schoolgirls of St. Trinianís take their unique brand of destructive comic mayhem to the European mainland when they set off on a trip to Italy.

St. Trinianís school headmistress Miss Fritton (Alastair Sim) is in jail, and the school is surrounded by police and army troops in an attempt to control the wayward pupils, yet salvation is provided when the girls cheat at a competition which wins them a prize outing to Rome. Coming along for the ride is Lionel Jeffries as a jewel thief disguising himself as a St. Trinianís mistress to evade the police. You know the routine, the jewels somehow get into a water polo ball, Joyce Grenfell is an undercover policewomen, Terry-Thomas a shady coach operator taking the girls on their trip, and Sabrina one of the more mature young ladies; jolly hockey-sticks all round.
