Magdat Kicsapjak (Magda is Expelled) was director Ladislao Vajda's next-to-last Hungarian film; only Friday Rose remained to be filmed before he moved on to Italy, Spain, England and, ultimately, Germany. Ida Turay plays Magda, a 16-year-old Budapest schoolgirl with a predilection for trouble. The fun begins when Magda mails a "mash note" written as part of a language exercise by the school's English teacher (Clara Tolney). The letter ends up in the hands of Liverpool industrialist Harvey (Antal Pager), who out of curiosity pays a visit to the school. Love blooms between Harvey and the teacher, but Magda is expelled for her insubordination all the same. Never fear, however: our heroine also lands a handsome husband at fade-out time.
