Description
Herb Ross made his directorial debut with this charming musical, "Goodbye Mr. Chips" (1969), bursting onto the screen from James Hilton's timeless tale. Peter O'Toole gives an Oscar-nominated performance as he leads a cast including pop star Petula Clark, Michael Redgrave and Sian Phillips in this melodic 1969 update of the 1939 original film, about a proper schoolmaster whose world changes forever when he falls in love with a music-hall girl, and whose goodness to his students becomes a legacy against the background of World War II.

    Comments about this product:

    The 1939 "Goodbye Mr. Chips" was a heart warming tearjerker, Robert
    Donat and Greer Garson were EXCELLENT in it, this 1969 musical version
    was saved from being a total disaster by, luckily the two VERY talented leads,
    Peter O'Toole and Petula Clark's performances plus the gorgeous
    cinematography--music and songs are merely serviceable.

      Those not familiar with Petula Clark are in for a treat. Also recommend seeing Finian's Rainbow. She is pure and refreshing. Beautiful songs and delightful presence she brings to the screen. Great leading men in both.

        Comments about this product:

        It seemed to have some substandard scene editing, and the soundtrack is not synchronized -- becoming more noticeable as the movie progresses.

        Goodbye Mr. Chips is a love story on many levels: Of history, of a dead romance language, of theater, of education, and between a man and a woman; with the consequences of a world war thrown in.

        Petula Clark was the favorite Songstress of my youth. This movie is a valued addition to my collection.

                    Comments about this product:

                    I was so happy to finally find this version. Its amazing how opinions change as we age. At first the older version with Donat was my favorite, but now I think the school masters character is far more developed in this musical version. Unfortunately, 2 weeks after the purchase Peter O'Toole died. He will be missed!
