At her prime
11 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie was adapted by Scottish Television into a seven episode television serial in 1978. It is very much an adaptation of the play of the novel rather than the novel itself.

Geraldine McEwan takes the the lead as Miss Jean Brodie and episodic format give the film room to breathe in comparison to the more famous film of the play.

It is obvious from the first episode that Scottish Television spent a lot of money in this series with extensive location shooting in the opening episode including Jean Brodie riding on a steam train. Music was provided by Hollywood Oscar winner Marvin Hamlisch.

Things get more sedate in the class room. Geraldine McEwan and John Castle are the stars here. There are future stars playing the school girls such as Lynsey Baxter and Tracey Childs. It goes nicely along but it does also drag out a bit as well.
