Andrew Crocker-Harris, "The Crock" as his students call him, knows he isn't loved like the fictional Mr. Chips, but in the span of just over a day he is forced as Robert Burns would say, "to see ourselves as others see us." Michael Redgrave, the father of the British theatrical family and himself a former schoolmaster, brings a quiet resolve to the role of a man coming to terms with the failure of his life. His much younger wife, Jean (Jean Kent), has come to the end of her frustration with his failure to rise in his profession and becomes bitter when illness forces his early retirement. When a small act of kindness by one of his students lets him see how he has never imparted to them his own love of the classics, he begins to reflect on the rest of his life. His marital problems, confessed in terms far less explicit than are common to today, is perhaps even more effective for its verbal restraint. Anthony Asquith, who directed Redgrave in THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, takes a successful contemporary play by Terance Rattigan and provides a seamless transition to the screen. Jean Kent strikes just the right note as a woman who, in the name of honesty, has become heartlessly cruel, adding to the pleasure of watching Michael Redgrave's wonderful performance build to its deeply emotional climax.

    This musical has fine music, with songs that should be familiar to to many, and enjoyable acting, with Irene Dunne, Randolph Scott, Fred Astaire, and Ginger Rogers. It has been remade under another titke, but this is a fun movie, as it is.

  • Worth the investment of time

    This movie starts off slow (by today's standards) but the exposition of human emotions and great acting towards the end make it well worth the wait! The film does a tremendous job of very subtely, yet effectively, piling woes on to the main character until he gets to the end where one kind act completely breaks him down. It's a beautiful character study and I would recommend it to anyone. I would also suggest this film as a good companion to Dead Poet's Society if you liked that film.
