Basis for two films: the 1939 with Robert Donat who won the Best Actor Oscar in what was probably Hollywood's best year ever and the 1969 remake with Peter O'Toole, Petula Clark, and Michael Redgrave. An evocative portrayal of English public school life. A retired schoolmaster Charles 'Chips' Chipping, ageing throughout the story, recalls his days at Brookfield, a boy's public school, from 1870 to 1928.
