Genuinely deserves to be called heartwarming. Peter O'Toole and Petula Clark are exactly right. Goodbye, Mr. Chips burst ont oscreens during the exuberant movie-musicals era of Oliver!, My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music. This charming story of a shy schoolmaster whose narrow world opens wide through the power of love has all the right ingredients: a history as a beloved novel and nonmusical movie; legendary talents working magic off camera; and on-camera alchemy from a marquee cast, including Petula Clark, Michael Redgrave, Sian Phillips and, in the title role, the marvelous Peter O'Toole. His endearing and nuanced performance earned him 1969's Best Actor Golden Globe and National Board of Review Awards, a Best Actor Oscar nomination - and a lasting place in musicals lore.
