You know Bill Holloway? Office Holloway I suppose I should refer to him.
William was one of my pupils.
Well I just thought you might like to know how he's got you up on a pedestal. He says that you're his ideal of "real genteel".

I can't understand why this movie was never put on DVD or at least video. I haven't even seen it on the TV for years, but I have seen it a couple of times years ago. It is a touching story about a dedicated schoolteacher with a passion for teaching. Miss Dove is played by Jennifer Jones. A young Robert Stack is in the movie and there are some very touching moments.
Too bad it wasn't on DVD. If you see it listed on TV. jump at the chance to watch it if you like classics, because this is one good classic. Keep a hanky handy.
