The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie ()

directed by
featuring Maggie Smith, Robert Stephens, Pamela Franklin, Gordon Jackson, Celia Johnson

Based on the novel by Muriel Spark, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie stars Maggie Smith in the title role. Smith won an Academy Award for her delicately textured portrayal of an eccentric teacher at an exclusive Scottish girl's school. Miss Jean exhorts her "gels" to follow their hearts and never lose their youthful idealism. Unfortunately for her, she also stumps for her favorite political figures: Mussolini and Franco. In addition, she can't keep the innermost details of her private life a secret, and in fact boasts about her sex life to her students. Her prize pupil (Pamela Franklin) becomes so much a clone of Miss Jean that she ends up a threat to the teacher. Ultimately, Miss Jean loses her position, but not the hearts of her students. The box-office success of Prime of Miss Jean Brodie was due in great part to the popularity of the title song, as recorded by Rod McKuen. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

This is a movie for someone my age,75. I don't know anyone that would like it. That doesn't mean i did not enjoy it. (:-)

Great Maggie Smith vehicle. Really transports the viewer across time and continents to a different political and social era.
