Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969)
Robert Donat won an Oscar for his portrayal of the humble British don in the 1939 film Goodbye, Mr. Chips--and Peter O'Toole was nominated for his version of the role in this lackluster musical (he, along with Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight of Midnight Cowboy, lost to John Wayne in True Grit). O'Toole is affecting as the shy English schoolteacher at a private boys' school who is brought out of his shell by the love of a good woman, then goes on to become a teaching legend after her tragic death. But the idea of turning this touching tale into a musical (with totally forgettable songs by John Williams and Leslie Bricusse) was almost as wrong-headed as having O'Toole do his own singing--or as casting singer Petula Clark as his wife. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This musical adaptation of James Hilton's novel about the romance between a boring schoolmaster and a west end actress (at least she is in this version) clearly aims at success. Read morePublished on Dec 6 2002 by David L Rattigan
