Description: Revised Shooting script for the 1969 film. This second of two film adaptations of James Hilton's masterpiece was a more epic interpretation than its Oscar-winning 1939 predecessor (it casts the story as a widescreen musical, with a 144-minute running time). Nominated for two Academy Awards, one of which was for O'Toole's unforgettable performance as Arthur Chipping, a shy and withdrawn teacher at a boys' school whose life changes radically when he marries music hall singer Katherine (Clark).
