Goodbye, Mr. Chips' DVD, Robert Donat (1939), New & Sealed
'Mr Chips' is a celebration of the teaching profession. 'Chips' finishes teachers' college in England and is almost run over by the students his first day teaching. But he learns how to balance good teaching with the right amount and kind of discipline in order for his students to be guided into a good education. However, he is somewhat shy and almost always in earnest.
'Chips' takes a vacation and meets a woman while doing some hiking. She is his perfect match and they fall in love and marry and she helps him to come out of his shell. He begins cracking jokes that have the students rolling on the desks with laughter. The couple become more than just educators; they begin to care for the children in many other ways.
The film follows 'Chips' throughout his growing old. He gives the children morale and courage during the horrors of the War. 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips' shows the beauty and rewards of the teaching profession, though it can be very difficult at times. Robert Donat gives one of the greatest acting performances in history. Brilliant!
