Storyline

In the later years of the nineteenth century Latin master Mr. Chipping is the mainstay of Brookfields boys boarding school, a good teacher and a kindly person but he is considered to be married to the job so that it is a surprise when, on a walking holiday, he meets and marries the vivacious Kathie,who becomes his helpmate at the school but sadly pre-deceases him. Just before World War One insensitive new headmaster Ralston tries to edge Chipping out but the boys rally and Sir John Rivers, an old pupil of Chipping's and now head of the board of governors, invites him to stay and,when the war breaks out and Ralston joins up, Chipping becomes the new head. He is saddened by the waste of young lives in the pointless war and also by the death of his old friend and former German teacher Max, who had returned to his homeland to fight for Germany and he reminds the assembled boys that an individual's goodness is more important than their nationality. It is a sad day for all concerned when ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Another high-octane performance by Tom Szekeres
8 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The overriding triumph of Goodbye Mr Chips was undoubtedly the performance of Tom Szekeres. His powerhouse performance was a joy to behold and kept me watching the show over and over again.

I would love to meet Tom and shake his hand for what is certainly the most heartfelt, compelling and overall spectacular example of acting that has been witnessed in the 20th (and 21st) century. He outshone Martin Clunes in almost every possible way and, even though Martin is a fine actor apparently, I believe Tom Szekeres is head and shoulders above the rest.

In conclusion, Tom Szekeres is the man. The one and only. There can be no comparisons and no alternatives. Goodbye Mr Chips was good, but Tom Szekeres was better.
