1 Iki Piki: Looks like an organ storage case.

The Trouble With Angels is a 1966 comedy film about a pair of misfit girls attending a Catholic boarding school run by nuns. Growing up as a child, this was one of my favourite films. I don't recall very many films with child lead characters that I was familiar with back then - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Wizard of Oz are the only two I can think of offhand, and neither of those was a comedy. I spent many an hour rolling with laughter at the antics of Hayley Mills and June Harding.

I still use lines from this movie in casual conversation today.

2018-09-04 Rerun commentary: As much as I liked The Trouble With Angels (admittedly probably assisted by a kiddie-crush on the young Hayley Mills), I was always disappointed with the ending. If you know the film, you'll know what I mean, but I won't spoil it for anyone else. It's still a film worth seeing for the most part, though I suppose it will feel a bit dated and slow paced to today's audiences. But the jokes and comic sequences are timeless and hilarious.

Oddly though, as an adult I've bought DVDs of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Wizard of Oz, but I've never acquired one of The Trouble With Angels. Maybe it didn't quite become as much of a classic as the former two films, despite my childhood love for it.
