"I am a teacher - First, last, always!",
This review is from: The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (DVD)Maggie Smith won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Jean Brodie, an unconventional and outspoken teacher in a stuffy Edinburgh girls' school who encourages her students to be just like herself. Miss Brodie proclaims she is "in her prime," but is, in reality, a spinster, still sadly attracted to her unscrupulous ex-lover and often living in the past.
Smith was so young and beautiful when she made this movie. She dominates the screen with her charisma and power.Pamela Franklin is excellent as one of Jean's disciples, and Rod McKuen's music is lovely. This film is a must for fans of Maggie Smith.
