THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE (1969) (SPECIAL PROMOTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Robert Stephens, Maggie Smith, Pamela Franklin, Gordon Jackson, Celia Johnson, Jane Carr
Directed By:  Ronald Neame
Composed By:  Rod McKuen

“Maggie Smith’s tour-de-force performance as a school-teacher slipping into spinsterhood is one of several notable achievements in this sentimental and macabre personal tragedy…The telling involves elements of warm humor, biting sarcasm, pity, contempt, betrayal, and despair.” —Variety

“Miss Smith…is simply great. It’s the kind of performance that not only has meaning within the context of the movie, but also can be consciously enjoyed as the work of an individual, fully developed intelligence exercising its talents for the sheer joy of it.” —Vincent Canby, The New York Times

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969) stars the brilliantly sly, marvelously intelligent Maggie Smith in an Oscar®-winning performance as the eponymous and unforgettable 1930s-era Edinburgh schoolteacher. Miss Brodie would rather instruct her favorites (including Pamela Franklin as a very clever pupil, indeed) in the passions and profundities of “Life”—a tendency that is beginning to get her in trouble with her school’s stern headmistress (the inimitable Celia Johnson). Further difficulties are presented by Miss B’s fascist politics and unconventional relationships with a pair of colleagues: the kindly Mr. Lowther (Gordon Jackson) and the far more devilish Mr. Lloyd (the dashing Robert Stephens). Adapted by Jay Presson Allen from her play based on the novel by Muriel Spark; directed by Ronald Neame; and featuring music by Rod McKuen.
