Incessant Cockney street market vignettes and shots of London buses seem to suggest that it was all primarily intended for American consumption anyway.

Sentimental reflections on an inspirational teacher are often the makings of weak dishwater films, but in James Clavell's To Sir, with Love, a strong cast and an unforgettable title song make this an undeniable classic.

Poitier is good, but the film is memorable mostly for the song.

The charisma of Poitier and the energetic performances of a groovy-looking cast of high school hellcats (some of whom look like they've repeated year 12 at least 5 times) compensate for the shortcomings.
