Format: DVD
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.

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.

"To Sir With Love" was a beautiful story about a black teacher, Sidney Poitier, who overcomes racial barriers to teach West London toughs and toughettes the meaning of life. It was, literally, banned in Alabama, which was ruled entirely by...the Democrat party. In 1967, Poitier again stirred the red-necks with "In the Heat of the Night", where he plays Virgil Tibbs, a competent Philadelphia cop stuck overnight in a Mississippi town. It must be 110 degrees at night. The white boys sweat like stuck pigs while Virgil is as cool as a cucumber in a Savoy Row suit. The sheriff, Rod Steiger, is discomfited by circumstances in which Tibbs is "lent" to him to solve a murder that happens to occur when he is there. In working together, layer after layer of characterization is stripped away in marvelous fashion, through the skill of director Norman Jewison (who tells everybody he is not a Jew, he is Methodist), until understanding between the two men become a metaphor for the healing of a divided America. Very good stuff.

Format: DVD
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.
