Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

One more terrific film from a terrific year for movies - 1939, the year of Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, and Stagecoach, among others - Sam Wood's Goodbye Mr. Chips is a deeply stirring work starring Robert Donat as the old schoolmaster who looks back upon his life. Told mostly in flashbacks, the film wraps itself around a history of an older England as seen through the generations of boys who pass through Mr. Chips's classroom. Greer Garson is her usual classy, sexy-intelligent self as Donat's wife, their earlier courtship one of the film's highlights.

Although singing star Katherine Chipping (Clark) dies far too young, her love inspires Arthur Chipping (O'Toole) to become an exceptional teacher and schoolmaster in this story of honor, manners and the joy of a live lived in the service of others.

Based on the 1939 film and the novel by James Hilton.
