Good Morning, Miss Dove Details


This distaff variation of the [[Feature~V20347~Goodbye Mr. Chips~goodbyemrchips]] theme is based on a novel by Frances Gray Patton. While confined to a sickbed, ageing New England schoolteacher Miss Dove (Jennifer Jones) recalls the many students who passed through her classroom. Among her now-grown-up prize pupils are surgeon Tom Baker (Robert Stack), policeman Bill Holloway (Chuck Connors) and playright Maurice (Jerry Paris), all of whom were able to overcome difficult childhoods and strive for success with the help of Miss Dove. As it turns out, it is Dr. Tom Baker who is to perform the operation that may save the life of his ailing former teacher. A 60-minute TV adaptation of [[Feature~V169306~Good Morning Miss Dove~dobroeutro]], with Phyllis Kirk in the Jennifer Jones role, was seen in 1956 as part of the weekly anthology [[Feature~V177617~The 20th Century-Fox Hour~thecentury:americastimevol1]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
