Film Version of "Prime of Miss Jean Brodie"

I looked at a copy of the film this weekend, and my memory had replaced Alec Guinness for Gordon Jackson -- sorry for the confusion. I remember Jackson from one of my favourite Avengers episodes, Castle De'ath, as well as a co-star with Steve McQueen in The Great Escape, but most famously of course the character of the butler Mr. Hudson in the BBC's Upstairs Downstairs.

We'll discuss the significant change in emphasis from the book to the film adaptation, using one important scence, in class this week.
