If I am not mistaken the first English movie I watched was "To Sir, with love". Having access to watch movies was one of the hidden benefits of obtaining British Council membership. So one day I made up my mind to go and ask the librarian whether I can also make a reservation to come and watch a movie there, she happily obliged and gave me an appointment. I was supposed to choose the movie, at that point of time I only knew that Charlie Chaplain, so I was about to book for a Charlie Chaplain movie, but then the friendly librarian told me to watch " To Sir, with Love". I didn't want to disappoint her, I was more than happy to get a chance to watch any movie. So the reservation was made and I turned up at the library on time to watch the movie.
It turned out to be a wonderful movie, watching it while being at school was making it even better. At that time itself it was a movie taken 25 years before, but it was interesting. After years today I bumped in to the movie on youtube when I was browsing randomly. I watched the full movie again. I was sure it was an evergreen movie and I couldn't help thinking how many similar movies had it managed to inspire! Everything needs inspiration!
I would definitely rank it as an ever green classic!
