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

Well-meaning tripe.

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.

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.
