Flash Harry is a delightful fictional character from the St Trinians series of films, first appearing in 1954, played by George Cole.
He is described as ‘an ostentatious, loudly dressed and unusually ill-mannered man’, officially ‘the chairman of the board of governors’ at St Trinians school for girls.
Flash Harry is a cockney who partakes in many shady dealings, but thoroughly trusted by the pupils. He helps bottle and sell the gin that the girls distil in the school chemistry lab, places bets for them on the horses and runs a matrimonial agency for teenage 6th form girls, setting them up with wealthy men.
Flash Harry makes an excellent choice of character for fancy dress parties or 50’s events.
