Mädchen in Uniform (Girls in Uniform) is a 1958 German drama film directed by Géza von Radványi and based on the play (credited here as "Ritter Nérestan") by Christa Winsloe. It was entered into the 8th Berlin International Film Festival.[1] It is a remake of the 1931 film.


In the early twentieth century, after the death of her mother, the young Manuela is admitted to a boarding school for girls where the headmistress imposes a rigid discipline. Manuela projects all her affection onto Miss Elisabeth von Bernburg, the only supervisor to show her any kindness. At boarding school, at a party where alcohol flows a little freely, Manuela creates a scandal by loudly proclaiming her love for Miss von Bernburg. Her later suicide attempt prompts the headmistress to review her methods while Elisabeth von Bernburg resigns.
