Good Morning, Miss Dove is a 1955 sentimental film about a school teacher's life of service and the positive effect she has on an entire community. Schmaltz, but nicely done shmaltz if that's to your taste. It stars Jennifer Jones as Miss Dove. Robert Stack and Chuck Connors are also in this movie.
The New York Times opens its review with this: "Since it is unashamedly sentimental without being excessively maudlin about its heroine, "Good Morning, Miss Dove" deserves credit for being honest and entertaining." DVD Talk concludes, "... fans of the hale and hearty Inspirational Teacher genre will be touches by this lovingly crafted story."
