Oh, good old Chips. I wish I had a teacher like Robert Donat in Goodbye Mr. Chips. He is so lovely and heartwarming in the role for which he won a best actor Oscar.
A true three-hankie classic (as someone once described Dark Victory), Goodbye Mr. Chips is a wonderful film that will continue to be a favourite for as long as we have the means to view films. It has such great performances that even if the other elements of production were so so (which they weren't), the film would still work well.
If you want to go the whole way, and do a Greer Garson film marathon... I am not exactly your person to ask. I have seen 3 of her films, and they were all fantastic.
- Mrs. Miniver
- Pride And Prejudice
- Goodbye Mr. Chips
- Madam Curie
- Julius Ceasar
- The Miniver Story (sequel to Mrs. Miniver)
- Little Women
