To Sir, with Love

To Sir, With Love is a well-made, sometimes poignant, drama [from the 1959 E.R. Braithwaite novel] about a Negro teacher, working in a London slum, who transforms an unruly class into a group of youngsters better prepared for adult life. Sidney Poitier stars in an excellent performance.

Poitier, after gauging the rebellious mood of his class, scraps the formal agenda and institutes what he rightly calls ‘survival training’.

Students include Christian Roberts, very good as the natural class leader, Judy Geeson, a looker who gets a crush on teacher, Christopher Chittell, another reformed punk, and Lulu, an engaging personality with substantial acting ability.
