Goodbye, Mr. Chips

A shy, withdrawn English schoolteacher falls for a flashy showgirl. Arthur Chipping is an academic teaching at Brookfield Boys School outside of London in the 1920's. Although he does what he considers best for his students, they don't much like him, nicknaming him "Ditchy", short for "dull as ditch water". His life changes when he meets Katherine Bridges, a music hall actress and a woman with a questionable past. She affectionately calls him Mr. Chips. Despite their differences, they fall in love. He in particular realizes that in striking a relationship, they will have many obstacles to overcome. He doesn't particularly like the world in which she is involved, including her friends and her profession, and she doesn't exactly fit the mold of a teacher's wife. Still, they decide to get married. She forgoes her career to be Mrs. Chips, living on campus as the housewife of a teacher at a proper boy's school. It is a world in which she will have to learn the rules, or at least bend them to her sensibilities, although she vows never to embarrass him.

Ranked #85 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women of Rock N Roll

She turned down leading roles in the films (1966), (1967), (1970) and (1972).

First British solo artist to win a Grammy (for the -penned "Downtown" in 1964). When the song topped the American charts, she became the first British female pop singer to have a number one hit single in the United States. Her collaboration with Hatch produced another Grammy winner titled, "I Know a Place" (1965) and the chart-topper "My Love" (1966), further making her the first British female vocalist to have two number one hits on the US charts. Other memorable songs have included, "Sailor" (1961), "My Friend the Sea" (1961), "Round Every Corner" (1965), "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love" (1966), "This is My Song" (from (1967)), "Don't Sleep in the Subway" (1967), "The Other Man's Grass (is Always Greener)" (1968), "Don't Give Up" (1968), "My Guy" (1972), "Natural Love" (1982), etc.

At nearly 73 she continues to perform regularly. Her 2005 schedule includes two lengthy stints in Branson, Missouri (performing with in his Moon River Theater), a mini-Canadian tour and scattered dates throughout the UK and US.

She has written dozens of songs, under both her own name and the pseudonym "Al Grant." The best known is "You're the One," which was a major hit for fellow Warner Brothers recording artists .

She has recorded well in excess of 1000 songs.

She composed the score for and starred in a musical drama entitled "Someone Like You" in London's West End in the early 1990s. The show was set in post Civil War West Virginia during the days of Reconstruction, and centered on a woman's search for her ne'er-do-well traveling preacher husband.

She has sold more than 70 million records worldwide, making her the best-selling British female vocalist in history.

In August 1981, she opened in "The Sound of Music" in London's West End with what was then the largest advance sale in British theatre history. What was originally intended to be a six-month run was extended to thirteen in order to accommodate public demand. During the week she took a break and her understudy played the role, the box office dropped a whopping 75%.

In 1968 Clark and singer were singing a duet on her show when she touched Belafonte's arm. A representative for the show's sponsor, Chrysler Corp., saw it and ordered the director to have them re-tape the duet and not to have Clark touch his arm, the rationale being that viewers in the South would be outraged to see a white woman touching a black man, and the South was a big market for Chrysler's cars. Clark redid the scene, but when she found out the reason why, she and her husband - the show's producer - stormed into the control booth, ordered the director to destroy the second take and keep the original one. As expected, when the show was aired a few weeks later, many stations in the South wouldn't show it, and Chrysler received many letters from outraged Southerners saying they would never buy a Chrysler product again because of the company's sponsorship of the show.

In 1969 she was in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, room 1742 in Montreal, Canada, and was part of the chorus when recorded the song "Give Peace a Chance".

MORE INFO ON PETER O'TOOLE: A leading man of prodigious talents, Irish-born Peter O'Toole was raised in Leeds, England, the son of a bookie. As a boy, he decided to become a journalist, beginning as a newspaper copy boy. Although he succeeded in becoming a reporter, he discovered the theater and made his stage debut at 17. He served as a radioman in the Royal Navy for two years, then attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, where his classmates included Albert Finney, Alan Bates and Richard Harris. He spent several years on-stage at the Bristol Old Vic, then made an inconspicuous film debut in 1960. In 1962, O'Toole was chosen by David Lean to play T.E. Lawrence in Lean's masterpiece, Lawrence of Arabia (1962). The part made O'Toole an international superstar. He continued successfully in artistically rich films as well as less artistic but commercially rewarding projects. He received Academy Award nominations (but no Oscar) for seven different films. However, medical problems (originally thought to have been brought on by his drinking but which turned out to be stomach cancer) threatened to destroy his career and life in the 1970s. He survived by giving up alcohol and, after serious medical treatment, returned to films with triumphant performances in The Stunt Man (1980) and My Favorite Year (1982). His youthful beauty lost to time and drink, O'Toole has found meaningful roles increasingly difficult to come by, though he remains one of the greatest actors of his generation. He has two daughters, Pat and Kate O'Toole, from his marriage to actress Si"n Phillips. He also has a son, Lorcan O'Toole, by model Karen Brown. He partnered with Jules Buck in "Keep Productions".
