The'Great'St. Trinian's'Train'Robbery is the fourth installment of a five-part British film series known as the St. Trinian's series. The series is based off of a real event which occurred in 1963 known as The Great Train Robbery. This installment was released in 1966 and did not include Alastair Sim, the main actor from the previous films, but received positive reviews regardless. "Alphonse" Askett (Frankie Howerd) is a hairdresser who plots the robbery of a train during his free time. A seemingly inconspicuous man, he actually leads the gang of crooks who rob the train worth $7 million. But Alphonse and his partners can't reap the benefits of the hefty loot just yet, as they must wait the traditional 7 years before making use of the money. In the meantime, Alphonse hides the stash in an old mansion. However, when the gang returns 7 years later, they find a girl's school has replaced the old mansion which hid their most prized possessions. But Alphonse and his gang of crooks insist they reclaim their loot despite the difficult circumstance they now find themselves in.moreless
