St Trinian's

To continue the film theme , I notice that a new St Trinian's film is being made.

I can see Stephen Fry and Rupert Everett camping it up in the way Joyce Grenfell and Alastair Sims did in the originals, but I'm still not convinced that there is a point to it.

Certain films are very much of their time, these include St Trinian's, Ealing comedies, Carry On and Doris Day movies. I don't think they benefit from a modern makeover and are best viewed in the original.

I have to confess I do love old camp films , and yes I do know how reactionary they are. That's why they should stay as old films and not be updated . It just does not work.
