Goodbye Mr. Chips (1939)

I guess if you need to see one sentimental, life-of-a-schoolteacher movie, then this is the one to see. Robert Donat, who I only really know from The 39 Steps, was great in this, so completely different from Richard Hannay. I liked it all but particularly liked the parts with Greer Garson, the love of Mr. Chipping's life.

  2. Have not seen this version. But I feel very sentimental about Peter O' Toole's version as I watched it as a pre-teen with my mom.
