Miss Jean Brodie is a teacher at a Scottish girls’ school in the 1930s who rankles fellow faculty members with her free-thinking lessons and inordinate sway over her young charges. One of those is prize pupil Sandy (an exceptional Pamela Franklin), who comes to learn that her teacher has a manipulative side. Directed by Ronald Neame and adapted by Jay Presson Allen from her play, the film is a tour de force for Maggie Smith, who earned a Best Actress Oscar in the title role. (Rod McKuen’s bittersweet “Jean” also earned Academy recognition, garnering a Best Song nomination).
An all-star cast - including Alan Alda, Michael Caine, Bill Cosby, Jane Fonda, Walter Matthau, Elaine May, Richard Pryor and Supporting Actress Oscar winner Maggie Smith - sparkles in this Neil Simon-penned comedy, which follows couples in varying stages of fidelity at the Beverly Hills Hotel through four vignettes. "The most agreeably realised Simon film in years." - Vincent Canby, The New York Times
