Goodbye, Mr. Chips

Country: USA

Genre: Drama, Musical, Romance



Stuffy Latin instructor Arthur Chipping (Peter O'Toole) is widely disliked by his young charges at a small public school in Great Britain in the 1920s, until he finds his life turned around by charming music hall singer Katherine Bridges (Petula Clark). Though her lower-class background impedes Chipping's longed-for rise to the position of headmaster, the boys become devoted to her good-hearted warmth, which also helps transform the once-despised "Chips" into a beloved school figure.


  • The screenplay, by Terence Rattigan, is based on the 1934 novella of the same name by James Hilton, though with significant alterations.
