To Sir, With Love Blu-Ray
A novice teacher faces a class of rowdy, undisciplined working class punks in this classic film that reflected some of the problems and fears of teens in the 60's. Sidney Poitier gives one of his finest performances as Mark Thackeray, an out-of-work engineer who turns to teaching in London's tough East End. The graduating class, led by Denham (Christian Roberts), Pamela (Judi Geeson) and Barbara (Lulu, who also sings the title song), sets out to destroy Thackeray as they did his predecessor by breaking his spirit. But Thackeray, no stranger to hostility, meets the challenge by treating the students as young adults who will soon enter a work force when they must stand of fall on their own. When offered an engineering joy, Thackeray must decide if he wants to stay.
