Professorial Role Models

Mine is of course Professor Kingsfield from “The Paper Chase”:

Best line: “Loud! Fill the classroom with your intelligence.”

My co-bloggers are of course warm-and-fuzzy types. Anybody have a clip of the scene from One True Thing where the Renee Zellweger character remembers visiting her father’s classroom as a child? “So, I guess this is the last class of the semester. Thank you for taking this journey with me.” (Students all stand up and applaud, shake his hand as he walks down the aisle, etc.) Then there’s the scene from Better Off Dead with the high-school math teacher played by Vincent Schiavelli. Classic!

    Indiana Jones, who wouldn’t want young college girls writing on their eye lids for you.

    who was that playing Hart? It didn’t look like Timothy Bottoms

    Right, Bottoms played Hart in the movie, this is from the TV series, in which a different actor played Hart. (No Lindsay Wagner either!)

    Then there’s Donald Sutherland in Animal House beseeching his students to actually turn in their term papers. “I’m serious, this is my job.”
