“Up/Down” – #SoCS June 26, 2021

So the prompt for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday brought to mind a 1967 film titled Up The Down Staircase. The film stared Sandy Dennis (“Splendor In The Grass” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”) and featured Jean Stapleton (“Edith Bunker” on “All In The Family”), Sorrell Booke (“Boss Hogg” on “The Dukes of Hazard“), Florence Stanley (“Bernice Fish” on “Barney Miller”) and other actresses from stage and film.

I came across this film several years ago playing on t.v. and even though I’m not much of a movie watcher, I really liked the film. The plot of the movie involves a young, newly graduated English teacher who begin working in a tough, New York high school. Her background is very different from her students and the environment she is going into is a far cry from the suburbs she most likely grew up in.
