Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A well-preserved Sidney Poitier reprises his role as teacher Mark Thackeray in this belated and rather pointless sequel to the 1967 original. Once again Thackeray's quiet dignity instils respect and self-belief in a rowdy class of slum kids, but the action is transposed from London to the US. There are no cute East Enders here, just a clichéd class-load of stereotypical hoodlums. Peter Bogdanovich directs with skill, but no great distinction, and Poitier looks like he could sleepwalk through this sort of stuff.
