The Synopsis for Conrack (1974) 1080p

White Pat Conroy was born and raised in Beaufort, South Carolina. In March, 1969 under the Beaufort School District, he starts a job teaching at a small poor school located on Daufuskie Island, an island in a South Carolina river delta, the island accessible only by boat. The island is inhabited exclusively by blacks. He quickly learns that his students, who have never left the island, lack not only a basic understanding of academic items such as the alphabet and simple arithmetic, but also of other basic necessities of life such as personal hygiene. They can't even pronounce his name, they who call him Conrack. The teachers before him, including the school principal Mrs. Scott, have always treated the students as being slow and basically unteachable of academics.

Martin Ritt seems to be a director who was always interested in socialissues (as the son of immigrants, he had every incentive to be so,especially since he was blacklisted in the '50s). "Conrack" is based onPat Conroy's novel "The Water is Wide", about his own experience in1969 teaching a school of impoverished black children about the outsideworld, much to the chagrin of the right-wing superintendent (HumeCronyn). What added to the movie's strength was the cultural andhistorical context: Conroy (Jon Voight) frustratedly tells anotherteacher how many of the children don't know about Paul Newman, SidneyPoitier, the Vietnam War, or even where Vietnam is. He proceeds toenlighten them about all these factors.

Somewhere, I read a complaint that when Conroy played music for thechildren, he only played white music. The truth is, you can't blame themovie for that; it was based on Conroy's real experience. Either way,the movie's a real gem.

Despite Mr. Voight's skill, the teacher's character never jells.

Few will totally resist the surefire appeal of this latest variation on Pygmalion mythology.
