TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 26 June 2004
I always liked this film a lot and decided I had to have it on DVD. I hadn't seen it for years, but it was just as good as I remembered it, and like all great sentimental films, it brings a tear to the eye at the end.
The cast is perfect. Poitier is stiff and awkward as the only black teacher in London's roughest school (interesting how he spends most of his time while teaching slapping something suspiciously like a truncheon against the palm of his hand). Judy Geeson is irresistible as Pamela, and Lulu remarkably common! But what a great voice, and what a great song To Sir With Love still is.
There's lots of drama, tension, stuff to get you laughing and crying. It's a very well-formed film, structurally; very tight. As you'd expect from Clavell.
What I hadn't fully remembered is how beautifully shot it is. Every scene is a work of art.
The DVD transfer does full justice to this and preserves all the warmth and beauty of 1960s Technicolor. A treasure.
