To Sir, with Love (1967) Poster

Trivia

The film did so unexpectedly well in America that Columbia Pictures did market research to find out why so many people had gone to it. Their answer: Sidney Poitier.
The South African Publications Control Board banned this film, claiming that it was "offensive to see a Black male teaching a class of white children".
The band at the dance, The Mindbenders, were the original backing band for Wayne Fontana. Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders had a hit with "Game of Love" while the Mindbenders had a hit with "Groovy Kind of Love". Eric Stewart from the Mindbenders went onto greater success as part of 10CC.
