This movie, based on E.R. Braithwaite's book, was one of the outstanding movies of Sidney Poitier. I am a sucker of such movies, especially as I can relate to them. I was in a difficult school during my teenage years with bad schoolmates and some good teachers set me straight, otherwise, I would have been in trouble. This movie inspired many other movies but did not do such a splendid job. The main difference was the script and the actors.
Sidney plays the part of Mark Thackerey who is an engineer who does not get a job as an engineer and decides to become a teacher as an intermediate job. In the East End school he sees how bad the standards of the students are and realizes that he is not making any difference. Finally one day he loses his cool, and then hits on an idea to change the students attitude. Gradually, the students warm up to him. Though some of the ideas might be dated (language, customs etc) for the present day, the ideas of racism, generation difference, teacher-student trust and problems are well brought out. This is still a timeless classic and for anyone who has worked with schools, teachers and problem students.
The DVD quality is excellent. Both video and sound transfer are good. Sidney is Sidney, what can I say, his quiet, dignified style of acting and the way he handles all the situations by showing his emotions is fantastic. The theme song of this movie is also special. Do not miss this movie.

Has to be the all time best - love your teacher movie. Sidney Poitier is the ultimate calm, cool. and collected, demanding respect teacher ever on film. I would recommend this to anyone who ever had a crush on a teacher! Judy Gleeson plays her part so well, yet we know all the girls had a soft spot for him. He is the ultimate ladies man and man's man. I have loved this movie and the musical score from the first time I ever saw it.

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 26 2007
Format: DVD
Sidney Poitier had three films released in 1967, in my opinion this was the best of them. "In the Heat of the Night" might have been more socially relevant when seen today, and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" might have been more conventionally entertaining, but "To Sir, With Love" was to me more intelligent, sensitive and emotional that the other two. I am amazed that Sidney was not nominated for the Oscar in 1967, but given his performances in all three films, it's obvious the voters were torn. Sidney Poitier had a year in 1967 that, due to the length of time it takes to make a film these days, may not be repeated now, that is 3 starring roles in three extremely profitable films which does not happen that quite often.

That said and done, I would like to say that is a film is excellent. Poitier gives an outstanding performance as Thackeray, the new school teacher, and the kids, for the most part, were really from the East End. Aided by an excellent supporting cast including Judy Geeson as Lulu which I believe, is Scottish; and Michael Des Barres "Gypsy," the kid with the ubiquitous sunglasses -- is of French aristocracy/English descent; otherwise, what you're seeing is what you get: kids from the East End.

True, the script and some of the cinematography are dated, but what do you expect? The film was made towards the end 1966 and released in 1967; in many ways, it was ahead of itself. The main point, however, is not cinematic technique but character development and storyline. "To Sir, With Love" does portray strong characters, and does develop in a logical, positive way resulting it to be an excellent film.

Sidney Poitier's performance in TO SIR, WITH LOVE is nothing short of masterful. His presence, a great script, and a gang of unruly British teenagers make for a wonderful film. If you are a fan of Poitier, have a soft spot for teachers, or just want to see a great film buy TO SIR, WITH LOVE today. This dated classic won't disappoint you.
Poitier plays a dashing new teacher in an East End school. The school is basically a holding area for hoodlums. "Sir" Poitier seems to have no control over his "class". However, through teaching the practicalities of life in the real world, Sir is able to reach the teens. His struggle and triumph over the challenge of teaching is a grand one. Masterfully directed and written by famed James Clavell, this a classic treasure of a film.
If you enjoy classic films, wonderful acting, or Sidney Poitier this a film you need to have. If you don't like interacial mixing, teachers, or dated films it's not a picture for you. That being said, please give this great movie a view. You won't be disappointed at all.

1967 was an incredible year for Sidney Poitier. He starred in three magnificent films, the Academy Award winning films, In The Heat Of the Night & Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and this superb movie. Mr. Poitier stars as Mark Thackery who is an engineer, but in need of a job accepts a teaching position at a tough West End school. His class is made up of unruly ruffians and at first they rebel against him. It becomes obvious to Thackery that these kids don't have an interest in learning normal academics and that none of them will pursue higher education so he decides to prepare them for live by giving them lessons on how to cope in the real world. He gives cooking lessons, make up lessons for the girls, takes them to museums and they develop a respect and love for each other. Judy Geeson is fabulous as Pamela Dare, a blond beauty who develops a crush on Thackery. Christian Roberts is Devin the leader of the group. He is a thug not use to rules and is constantly testing Thackery. Lulu is Babs Pegg and she does a credible acting job and supplies the film with its famous theme song. Michael Des Barres has a minor part as one of the students and he would go on to minor rock career and marry one of the most famous of all rock groupies Pamela Des Barres. Mr. Poitier is the glue that holds the film together and he is equally forceful and compassionate in his performance. To sir With Love is dated in some ways with regards to the fashions and slang language, but it's story is timeless
