To Sir, With Love Reviews
My favorite scene is when the actress Lulu sings the title song "To Sir, With Love!" and the most emotional scene is when Poitier realizes that it is his purpose in life to help kids transform into men and the scene where he tears up his appointment letter as a radio engineer sums up the message of the movie effectively.
This movie may be dated and in all fairness, the sentiments and messages of the film may have been radical at the time but I say that the film perfectly reflects the culture, society, prejudices and morality of that era. It's touching to think that a teacher might care as deeply about his students as Poitier's character does in this film. ... I'll like to think that one person can affect many people by being persistent and patient and you don't even have to be rich or famous to do it.
And another thing, look out for Reardon Street (if your a Morrissey fan you will know what I'm talking about)
I believe this was the Beginning of the Love Affair for Films about Teachers That Change the Course of the Lives of Troubled Students.This Movie Still Holds Up against the New,Fabulous, & Frequent ones produced in recent History.I Can't help but think of this one as one of the best.I get THAT Song stuck in my Head Every Time I think of this Movie, it brings back a curiosity for this Movie again
