He never did tell us however how his date with Levi went when they saw HAIR together.

Were we meant to understand it was the show called "Hair," specifically?

Sadly, Dolly never did get to produce the show he'd wanted for years, "Hair-less".

Don't go gently towards that bright red light, Dolly.

He looks better than I've ever seen him, though.

Fondly recalling his giddiness when he would make fun of his "students"...their silly names, malapropisms, and just their general "blackness". This will be a true loss to all underprivileged children who will never know his cruel, shallow bigotry. Such a tragedy.

I mean WHEN it happens.


PEACE.

I think this is really beautiful, like when Sophia had a wake to hear how much she was loved by all her friends.

I often thought Dollypop was using poetic license when crafting some of the names of his students, because he was first and foremost an artist, unafraid to pursue his singular vision.

So, as an artist, one could say that Dolly has "Finished his hat..."


When that time comes, of course.

I took offense at his callous, un-compassionate, racist rants against his students. We're talking about an educator here, someone who needed to be a role model and a guiding force for those kids who were less fortunate.

He needs to be re-trained and subjected to watch a la Malcolm McDowell in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, the following films:

THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE
TO SIR, WITH LOVE
UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE
DANGEROUS MINDS
FAME
LEAN ON ME
STAND AND DELIVER
FREEDOM WRITERS
MUSIC OF THE HEART
MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS
MONA LISA SMILE
GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS (BOTH of them)
THE RON CLARK STORY
DEAD POET'S SOCIETY

and just for cautionary purposes:

TEACHING MRS. TINGLE
THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE

on the lighter side of things, all available seasons of:

WELCOME BACK, KOTTER and ROOM 222

Oh to hell with all of that. Just lock him up in a cell, tie him down and subject him to never-ending viewings of HELLO, DOLLY! That'll teach him a lesson!

I take a senior citizen grocery shopping once a month. I let him pick whatever he wants and we always fill the cart up.

I’ve often thought, this must be what Dolly’s family does for him… Or not.

Carlos, I have no idea how you could leave the very fitting William Inge film Good Luck Miss Wyckoff from your list.

Funny, isn't it, how all those old threads are reappearing just at the moment Dollypop disappeared?

But now I'm intrigued. Doris Roberts doing William Inge? I've got to hunt this one down.

The movie sounds absolutely filthy. I may need to take several showers and a scrubbing down after I've viewed it:

Set in Freedom, a fictional small Kansas town, in 1956, the film focuses on Evelyn Wyckoff, a lonely and depressed 35-year-old high school Latin teacher who no longer finds any satisfaction in her work. She is undergoing therapy with Wichita psychiatrist Dr. Steiner but making little progress. One day she is accosted by Rafe Collins, an African American scholarship student who cleans classrooms at the end of the school day. When the young man makes lewd suggestions and begins to unzip his pants, Evelyn flees in a panic but decides to tell no one what transpired, hoping it was an isolated incident.

The following day, Rafe approaches Evelyn again and rapes her on her desk. Ashamed and fearful of the public disgrace she will suffer if she reports being violated by a black man, she chooses to remain silent. Rafe forces himself upon her on a daily basis, and eventually Evelyn, craving attention and mistaking their abusive relationship for true love, begins to look forward to their trysts.

Oh and Eric, you missed the point of my post. I was naming movies of teachers that made a difference in their pupils' lives, not movies of teachers who liked to get raped by their school janitors and get off on it.

I'm pissed at the sharp negative turn this thread took, like Sandy into New Jersey. Dollypop was, excuse me, is all about inference and and being indirect. The least we can do in this remember acne thread is honor his talents by doing the same. I'm really sad some people took a thread of sensitivity and turned it into one of attacks. I know I don't control the Internet, but this was not my intent. I hope if Dollypop is still alive, what some of you wrote does not kill him with your cruelty.

Jebus, that Miss Wyckoff movie is lurid! One of the first things we see is graffiti that says: Miss Wyckoff Fu**s Ni****s. My. I can;t wait to watch the whole shebang.
