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
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

James Corcoran, Midwestern U. President:
You see, I heard Abe Lincoln talk at Gettysburg - and he talked sense. You know Ella, we've got something here in this country - the idea of people being free. But it's got to be taught and retaught, Ella, to each new crop of youngsters: the value of freedom.

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.
