"Please Sir!" (1971)

 -

Based on a classic British TV Sitcom based in the fictional but strangely accurate Fenn Street School, it dollowed the fortunes of young, idealistic teacher Bernard Hedges (John Alderton) as he struggled to cope with life, love, and the trials served up daily by his pupils in class 5C.

The movie deals with the annual school trip to spend two weeks on a rural retreat (a trip that until this year, 5C had been banned from). That changes after Mr Hedges' impassioned plea, but if there's any trouble......

The cast is a real who's who of British TV comedy, with Derek Guyler, Joan Sanderson, Patsy Rowlands, Noel Howlett, Richard Davies alongside Alderton on one side as the down-trodden staff, and Peter Cleall, Carol Hawkins, Liz Gebhardt, David Barry, Peter Denyer and Malcolm McFee as the unruly students, always looking for an opening to cause mayhem and disruption.

We spoke about this one on a recent 'Please Help!" thread:

Please Sir

This is one of my favorite movies from the stream of tv-to-big screen adaptations that emerged around the early seventies.

DRACULA A.D. 1972

 -

I really liked this, way more than I thought I would. Funny that the lead girl played Dylan's mom on Beverly Hills many years after. I kept racking my brain as to where I had seen her before, and then I remembered. She might have done a ton of other stuff too. But I, quite embarrassingly; remembered her as the mom of the Dyl [Smile]

P.S. Having watched a lot of Hammer flicks lately, I have come to the conclusion that Peter Cushing is/was one of the best actors ever. He can make the most outrageous dialogue sound serious and poignant. And he really goes for it 100%, in every role. That's the mark of a true actor.

It comes second to all the first ones, that's for sure. But I had really low expectations, and was happily surprised. Haven't seen Satanic Rites Of Dracula yet, though, so maybe that's worse.

I agree, Jay Lee, Peter Cushing was a fantastic actor. He really could take the silliest dialogue and make it sound thoroughly convincing. He was committted to every part (even in the silly "Land of the Minotaur"), and I always like the little "method-y" touches he did. My favorite is when he is testifying at the trial in "Frankenstein Created Woman," and he nonchalantly flips through the courtroom Bible. [Smile] Just a wonderful actor and gentlemen...

It depends on what time-frame or era in Woody's career that you prefer.

1960's to early-70's: (his "silly" period)
Take The Money And Run
Bananas
Everything You've Always Wanted To Know About Sex...
What's Up, Tiger Lily?
(redubbing a Japanese crime movie)


Mid-70's to early-80's: (his personal, contemplative era)
Love And Death
Annie Hall
Manhattan
Interiors
(his first major drama)
Stardust Memories

[Even though Woody acted in The Front (1976), he didn't write nor direct it, so I do not consider it as one of his movies.]


1983-to-late-1980's: (his 1930's-era nostalgic period)
Broadway Danny Rose
Radio Days
Purple Rose of Cairo
Zelig
(the "Forrest Gump" of the 80's!)


Late-80's to 1990's: (contemporary dramas and comedies)
Hannah & Her Sisters
Crimes And Misdemeanors



[I missed out on most of his stuff since the 1990's, but the ones that I did see were hit-or-miss, and mostly miss. But I did like Small Time Crooks and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion.]

Woody is, to be sure, an acquired taste. You either really enjoy him or you can't stand him.

Rocky 2 (1979). Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers and Burgess Meredith. A retired boxer is driven by circumstances to a rematch with an opponent as a result of the hate mail that the latter has been getting and also his conviction that his adversary's performance was good luck.

SABATA- 1969

 -

Excellent spaghetti western, starring Lee Van Cleef. Very gimmicky, but a lot of fun, with tons of great ideas. Campy as all hell, with a real slimy villain, but that's how I like it.


RETURN OF SABATA- 1971

 -

Fun sequel, but falls just short of the original. Still, the same fun ideas and gimmicks are present.

Wow, lots of love here for Serpico! Any suggestions for more great 70's drama? I picked up Serpico at my local library. They seem to have a lot of classics.

Look at the biggest actors / actresses of the era and pick the biggest movies from their lists. These aren't all dramas, but...

'Dog Day Afternoon'
'All the Presidents Men'
'Taxi Driver'
'Klute'
'Network'
'Don't Look Now'
'Godfather 1 & 2'
'Deer Hunter'
'And Justice for All'
'Chinatown'
'One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest'
'Marathon Man'
'Lenny'
