This movie can inspire you to overcome whatever obstacles you have, when you see how Marva Collins overcame the obstacles, financial and otherwise, in opening her own School in her home. When she was teaching in Public School, someone vandalized her Classroom. She tells the students whoever did it had a key, since she found the Classroom Door locked. That is why I disagree with the person who said the Classroom was disturbed by Students. The Students would not normally have a key to her Classroom.Written by

I have not seen this movie broadcast in a number of years, and really want to see it again. Cicely Tyson does a marvelous job in her stirring portrayal of Marva Collins. Morgan Freeman is also outstanding. This is a film that all educators need to see over and over again, because of the high standards Marva Collins sets for children. I cannot imagine this film disappearing from history.
I would like to know how I may purchase it, if you would make a copy available. I have searched every Crowne Hallmark store I could find, and exhausted websites and libraries trying to find a copy of this great film. It has been frustrating this past year trying to find a broadcast time or a copy of this fine film. If you can help me by broadcasting it or locating a copy that I may purchase, please let me know.
Please advise if it can be purchased or broadcast in the near future. It is the Marva Collins Story - Hallmark Hall of Fame movie in 1981.
Thank you, and keep on making films of this caliber! I enjoy the Hallmark channel.
