Happiest Days of Your Life 1950 Alastair Sim Comedy
Stars: Alastair Sim, Margaret Rutherford, John Turnbull
In Happiest Days of Your Life, Nutbourne College, an old established, all-boys, boarding school is told that another school is to be billeted with due to wartime restrictions. The shock is that it’s an all-girls school that has been sent. The two head teachers are soon battling for the upper hand with each other and the Ministry. But a crisis (or two) forces them to work together.

This English classic couldn’t miss with Alastair Sim and Margaret Rutherford in the same movie (he’s the head of a boys’ school who has to accommodate her school and staff during wartime alongside their own). There’s also the delightfully dotty Joyce Grenfell (Miss Gossage, ‘call me sausage’). The Happiest Days … falls back on slapstick farce and, rather like the St Trinian’s series, sends up the whole boarding school culture with glee. It all gets incredibly silly and, as such, is a genuinely hilarious and harmless hour and a half of entertainment.
