The role of the retiring master is not an easy one, but a prize in the right hands. Michael Redgrave fills it with distinction.

Worth watching for Redgrave's powerfully detailed performance as the schoolmaster.

What begins as an anti-Goodbye, Mr. Chips ends, thanks to some psychological point stretching, as an imitation of it.

The schoolmaster to whom our pity is drawn is a pretty weak and lukewarm individual, hardly fit to be a teacher of growing boys -- even a teacher of classical languages, which he is.

It's a blues pic for teachers that lays down some hope in the end.

It's a remarkable piece of writing by Terence Rattigan, the great English playwright, and great direction by Anthony Asquith to drag us through such an arid landscape and keep us interested, involved and finally moved

Dramatically powerful, exceptionally well acted and not without its tearful moments of reexamination and redemption...The Browning Version is a...masterwork of a film

a study of a man who's long since come to terms with his mediocrity and who is almost too willingly slipping into the shadows

Good show!

Asquith's film is pleasantly spry, and though the period details date it, its analysis of repression and resentment rarely feels dishonest.
