Deeds of Maidenly Unkindness Stills

I've just found two rare pictures from the classic Frank Launder St. Trinian's comedy Deeds of Maidenly Unkindness, in which wacky American student teachers Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Buffy (Sara Michelle Geller) are persuaded to impersonate qualified teachers at the school. Unfortunately both pictures suffer from the effects of age, and were rather small to begin with, I've done my best to improve them but they could be considerably better.

The first picture is a black and white still showing the catastrophic chemistry lesson in which Willow Rosenberg, who is secretly a witch (Alyson Hannigan, extreme right), accidentally turns a visiting health and safety inspector (Joyce Grenfall, left) into a toad, witnessed by Miss Fritton, headmistress (Alistair Sim, right).

The second picture is a small colour still, apparently a publicity shot which was not used. It shows Buffy (centre rear) talking to the school boxing team while Flash Harry (George Cole, centre front) explains the fine art of taking a dive.

[Note - No guarantee whatever that either scene will be in the story...]

Later - I've found a much better picture to use for Willow, and have redone the first picture accordingly.
