Fairy stories!

An excellent discourse from an even more excellent movie that I need to revisit very soon. You get it all in Jack and the Beanstalk and you get a good dose of Poitier's cool calm and Vic Morrow's classically dour delinquent. Does it come any finer? And then at the end, you see the squareness of the teachers still jiving Glenn Ford for trying and you can taste his frustration when he so presciently talks about thinking for yourself in the face of everything. It's boss.
