Movie Reviews

A Master Teacher's Genius
M. F. Davis | Bucks County, PA | 01/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How fortunate that Mr. Cullum had a talented friend in Robert Downey, Sr. who was skillful and sensitive to the magical moments fostered by an inspired teacher. The old black & white clips still capture the thrill children feel, when allowed to interpret information and learn from each other, while being guided by a teacher who wanted the very best for each of them.

The reunion at Rye, NY with some of his early students provided a thoughtful analysis of what his methods meant to them, and how they prospered under his tutelage.

I recommend that elementary & middle school teachers show this DVD at least once every year. It's that inspiring."
Brilliant work for our times in Education
Donagh Mac Donagh | Colorado | 01/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A must see for all educators frustrated by "No Child Left Behind" initiatives. This work chronicles the lifelong dedication of one teacher to bring every child forward in a learning environment which was beyond its times in creativity of teaching in the 50s and 60s."
