Trivia

The schoolteacher-wolf is depicted as a Confederate sympathizer; he encourages his students to paint a Confederate flag. However, his "theme song," which he whistles several times in the short, is Henry C. Work's "Kingdom Coming" (1862), an anti-Confederate song, celebrating the impending end of slavery in America. (This may be a deliberate joke by the filmmakers, because the dimwitted protagonist may not realize this.) See more »

Good Spoof

Blackboard Jumble (1957)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Hilarious spoof of Blackboard Jungle has a wolf with a Southern accent taking over for a teacher who had a nervous breakdown due to his mean spirited kids, clones of Droopy. Many wonderful gags and plenty of nice action.

Blackboard Jungle (1956)

**** (out of 4)

Explosive drama about a teacher (Glen Ford) trying to reach some troubled students (including Vic Morrow and Sidney Poitier). I've always loved these "teacher" films and this one here is certainly the best of the bunch. While the events are a little over the top in how much actually happens, the message and heart of the film is right on target. Ford is in my opinion one of the most under appreciated actors from his day and he's wonderful here as are Morrow and Poitier. The first rock and roll soundtrack doesn't hurt matters either.
