The Marva Collins Story Reviews:

I love the film so much. Mrs. Tyeson enjoy a nice role.My favourite part when the woman said Marva I hate you then Marva told I love you. Also how she overcome the teachers and Principal who dislike her and the methods.Marva is my hero.She took the several students she have and made them stars. All teachers, school board members,and folks who work with kids need to watch this movie. The school system will be entire lot better if they test Marva Collins methods.This film inspired me to test her teaching way to work with all kids especially who has been written off in school system.The college of education needs to teach Marva Collins ways to fresh teachers.


This is an exceptionally heartwarming storyline about an inner town teacher who, being fed up with the systematic discarding of our children, opened a school in her home. She encountered many obstacles from her husband thinking she had lost her mind to the town of Chicago trying to shut her down. She persevered...and the rest is history.I highly suggest this movie to parents, teachers, and anyone else who is involved in the education of our children. It's gut wrenching, exciting, even explosive at times, but it leaves you with hope and the belief that you can succeed.Thanks Marva for being my role model and thanks Cicely for walking in her shoes.


I have not seen this film broadcast in a number of years, and really wish 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 movie that all educators need to see over and over again, because of the high standards Marva Collins sets for children. I cannot imagine this movie disappearing from history.I would like to know how I may buy it, if you would create a copy available. I have searched each Crowne Hallmark shop I should find, and exhausted sites and libraries trying to search a copy of this nice film. It has been frustrating this past year trying to search a broadcast time or a copy of this fine film. If you can support me by broadcasting it or locating a copy that I may purchase, please allow me know.Please advise if it can be bought or broadcast in the near future. It is the Marva Collins Storyline - Hallmark Hall of Fame film in 1981.Thank you, and hold on making movies of this caliber! I play the Hallmark channel.
