Maggie Smith gives the performance of a lifetime in "The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie". She plays the titular character backed up by an outstanding supporting cast led by Pamela Franklin, Robert Stephens, Gordon Jackson and Celia Johnson. The "Brodie Set" or "Brodie Girls" are played to perfection by Pamela Franklin, Diane Grayson, Jane Carr and Shirley Steedman.

***SPOILER ALERT***

We highly recommend that you watch this film before listening to the podcast. We talk about the ending, and if you haven't seen the film before, you'll do yourself a favor by watching the film and then coming back to listen to the episode.

There is much to unpack with a character as complex as Jean Brodie, so to help us do some of the unpacking we're happy to welcome Arthur Sculco to the show as our guest and Tier 4 Patron. We do our best to reveal the nuance to her character and how she can be viewed from many different perspectives.

Thank you Arthur for joining us!

We hope you enjoy the roller coaster journey that is "The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie".

Do you want to join us on the show in the future? We have two Tier 4 spots left. We'd love to have you as a guest on an upcoming show!
