Good-bye, Mr. Chips by James Hilton (Pocket 93 - 1941)

Good-bye, Mr. Chips by James Hilton (Pocket 93 – 1941)

Mr. Chipping came to Brookfield, an English School, in 1870 and there he remained for sixty-three years, growing less shy and more mellow; growing more tolerant, more humorous, and always more beloved by the boys he taught. A schoolmaster for nearly three-quarters of a century, Mr. Chips summed up in his person an abiding loyalty for his pupils; a nostalgic and pathetic loyalty for Kathie, the wife who was with him for so short a time; and, above all, a crusty, dryly amusing, and lifelong loyalty to the School which was his world.

Aside from radio & stage adaptations, it is also the basis for the 1939 film starring Robert Donat, the 1969 modernized musical starring Peter O’Toole, a 1984 BBC serialization, and a 2002 British TV movie. Despite the success of the 1939 film, it is not mentioned in this edition.
