"All teachers have those days when they wonder "Why am I doing this"? This is the perfect "feel good" movie for all of us teachers! Martha Scott's protrayal of the life of a teacher from first job through retirement is perfect. Her young enthusiastic teacher on her first day is spot on and every encounter with students and administration rings so true. It isn't until the very end that she has a chance to see that she has truly "made a difference" in the lives of people. I love this movie!"
Excellent, Heartwarming Film You Probably Missed

"Martha Scott is a revelation in the title role of "Cheers for Miss Bishop". I have only seen Scott as the senior nun in 1975's disaster epic "Airport 1975", and I had no idea she was such a talent. You couldn't really tell from her role in "Airport 1975" - it was only a small role, and she was overshadowed by Helen Reddy's singing nun.
In "Cheers for Miss Bishop", Scott plays her role from a teenager until she is an old woman, and is never unconvincing for a second. She owns this movie, and brings such heart and pathos and range to her performance that one can only stand in awe of her skills. Everyone else is good, but they are merely there to support Scott. The script is touchingly written, and the sets, music, costumes, and every other aspect of the film are just as they should be. Definitely for fans of Martha Scott, and for anyone else who is in the mood to discover a forgotten treasure. Readily available from Alpha Video (through oldies.com)in a nicely-packaged, very affordable version, at only $5.95 plus shipping."
