From Gay Essential
The 1958 German drama Mädchen in Uniform, starring Lilli Palmer and Romy Schneider, details the story of Manuela von Meinhardis, who is sent away to an authoritarian boarding school at the command of an unsympathetic aunt. The movie, directed by Géza von Radványi, takes place in 1910-era Potsdam, and is a remake of the 1931 picture directed by distinguished German Karl Froelich.
“This is a lesbian classic that doesn’t need to rely on camp or nostalgia to be meaningful and powerful.”
— After Ellen
“It’s Romy Schneider who shines here, and is still mourned in Germany as one of their most beloved actresses.”
— Black Hole
“Like the best of the American melodramas of the period, the screenplay for the 1958 “Mädchen in Uniform” is a skillfully arranged improvement over the original.”
