THE WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT
June 25, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
Another entry in tonight’s TCM “Schoolgirl crushes” evening, this 1964 movie is one of the best ever made on the subject. It stars Peter Sellers as a concert pianist being followed by two giddy young girls (Tippy Walker and Merrie Spaeth) – but it’s the adult women, including Paula Prentiss and Angela Lansbury, who have most of the amorous fun here. And if this isn’t enough for you, stay tuned at midnight ET for perhaps the best young-crush movie ever made: 1967’s To Sir, with Love, starring Sidney Poitier as an American teaching overseas, and winning the respect of his students as well as the hearts of a few.

I saw this movie when it first came out because of Peter Sellers. But the teenaged girls made the movie for us (friends). Especially Tippy Walker. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this best bet. I'll be watching tonight. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks, Kate. Any time I can make a woman's heart skip a beat, I'll take it.
