5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty as Chips, 9 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Goodbye Mr Chips [1939] [DVD] (DVD)
Being a male student (and having had this film recommended by his mother because it 'moved' her) I came into this film a little wary.
It starts a little slow but the story develops at a much quicker pace throughout. Its' comedy edges are still as funny today as i am sure they were when it was made. Robert Donat is excellent as 'chips' and equals his quality of Hitchcock's The 39 Steps. The chemistry between him and Greer Garson is excellent and the power of the scenes makes you feel really close to 'chips'. The sounds is a little wayward at times, but in the main the DVD is excellent. To be fair this film has 'moved' me and I feel it is one which will stick in my mind for a while to come.
Only one problem is the lack of extras. Actors' profiles would have been nice, but it's only a minor complaint.
An excellent film, one I recommend whole-heartedly.

Wierdly, the trailer for this film can be found on the R1 DVD of the 1969 musical version with Peter O'Toole!
