Up the Down Staircase (1967) Robert Mulligan, Patrick Bedford, Sandy Dennis, Eileen Heckart


Sylvia Barrett is a rookie teacher at New York’s inner-city Calvin Coolidge High: her lit classes are overcrowded, a window is broken, there’s no chalk, books arrive late. The administration is concerned mainly with forms and rules (there’s an up and a down staircase); bells ring at the wrong time. Nevertheless, she tries. How she handles the chaos and her despair in her first semester makes up the film: a promising student drops out, another sleeps through class, a girl with a crush on a male teacher gets suicidal, and a bright but troublesome student misunderstands Sylvia’s reaching out. A discussion of Dickens, parents’ night, and a mock trial highlight the term. Can she make it?
