“To Sir With Love” teaches kids respect!
Watched this movie today, an oldie but still a goodie!
Sure has a lot of lessons for us still for such an old movie, 1966! Lulu sang the theme song!
Sidney Poitier played Mark Tackery, an engineer who had been unemployed for 18 months, who took a job as a teacher in a tough East London school. His students were a wild and rebellious bunch of kids from the wrong side of town. Lulu played one of the students.
He struggled to bond with them and they played many tricks on him until one day he exploded and lost his temper!
Then he got the answer!
What was his secret?
He found his dream job quite unexpectedly and never went back to engineering to the relief of his school and grateful students!
This movie, “To Sir With Love” was the defining movie for Sidney Poitier which made his career! #ToSirWithLove #SidneyPoitier
