When Wanda Merville inherits a million bucks, she’s promptly kidnapped, replaced by a fake "Wanda," and spirited away to a school for delinquent girls. Sponsored by crazy General Perkins (who’s still fighting the Battle of Tobruck in his basement) and the General’s dotty wife Lady Marjorie ("Give me some whiskey... Straight!"), the school is actually run by evil, reptilian-faced Alan Oavis, the Reverend Dave (who sings church choirs in German), and a masculine matron with a riding crop who force the girls to work in a laundry sweat-shop that resembles something out of WHITE ZOMBIE. The more attractive young gals are sent to work as "hostesses" in Mrs. Tindle’s gambling club while the more rebellious are strangled by Harry the hunchback and his hilariously huge hump...
Another terrific Edgar Wallace shocker where almost no one is whom they appear to be (even Harry has an ersatz hump). Fast paced and stylish with rich, atmospheric color and a great swinging 60’s score. It also makes one wonder if this is what England would have been like if Germany had won the war...
