Storyline

In old age, Miss Bishop reminisces about her life. A dedicated teacher, she spent her whole life teaching at Midwestern College. She never married when her first love married her cousin and another could not get a divorce from his wife. When her cousin dies giving birth, she raises the girl as if she were her own daughter and names her Hope. Throughout her life, she proved to be an inspiration to many students, many of whom move on to great things. On her retirement, many of her students return to say farewell. Written by garykmcd

Martha Scott's best performance as dedicated teacher

The film belongs to Martha Scott who gives her best screen performance as Miss Bishop, a dedicated teacher who always has to put her own life on the back burner in order to advance the education of a series of pupils. The film follows her career from her first teaching job to her retirement. It's episodic but well done and quite heart-warming. Scott does a marvelous job and deserved an Oscar nom but did not receive one. The sentimental musical score is a plus and did garner the film's only Oscar nom. Very much worth a look.
