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:

    This movie will delight you and sadden you with an outstanding screen play that keeps your attention throughout the film. Also this is the kind of movie that you will remember favorably for many years. The acting from the late Peter O'Toole is worth watching. This is a very good teaching film especially for children and any adult who has forgotten their manners

            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.

                            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!
