  Blackboard Jungle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blackboard Jungle is a 1955 social commentary film about teachers in an inner-city school.
It is based on the novel of the same name by Evan Hunter.
Blackboard Jungle was the first of what would become a popular genre: the film in which an idealistic teacher is confronted with a class of cynical teenagers, who have disengaged from conventional schooling.

Richard Dadier, the idealistic protagonist of Blackboard Jungle, is a dedicated teacher who finds himself thrust into an impossible situation: how can he combat the despicable violence that exists and lack of interest by the staff in the school at which he finds a job.
Dadier faces physical abuse, mental pounding and self doubt, but in the end, he somehow manages to get through to these alienated youths and his triumph is a sign of hope for a resolution to the problem.
Blackboard Jungle still manages a contemporary feel and the disc looks fresh enough to preserve that outlook.

The Blackboard Jungle is a tense drama starring Glenn Ford as a man who has no idea what he is in for as he starts to take a english teacher position at a "inner city" trade school for teen boys.
The Blackboard Jungle was produced in 1955-a popular time period for movies dealing with teenage delinquency.
Though some might find "The Blackboard Jungle" dated, it is in fact as timely in all the important ways as it was in the 50s.

 The Film That Helped Launch Rock, 'Blackboard Jungle,' Of 'Rock Around Clock' Fame, Turns 50 - CBS News
Fifty years later, at least some of the teens who so identified with "Blackboard" are now playing shuffleboard, while a new generation of educators deals with a new generation of high school problems.
For better or for worse, the phrase "Blackboard Jungle" is a permanent part of the American lexicon -- not to mention an ongoing challenge.
The Web site Rock Is Fifty credits "Blackboard Jungle" with unwittingly launching "the entire rock 'n' roll revolution." It says "Rock Around The Clock" took only three months to become the first rock No. 1 hit, eventually selling 45 million copies.

 WebDev Central: Blackboard Jungle
A couple of people I've spoken to have become suspicious that perhaps Blackboard is intentionally trying to break interoperability with other portal software as Blackboard provides its own portal, and portals like Luminis are starting to feature (albeit primitive) their own course systems.
Paranoia or not, intentional or not, Blackboard's relentless changes to its authentication mechanism and subsequent breaks with Luminis interoperability are likely making some people who are wedded to Blackboard think that perhaps a full-blown, tightly integrated course management system from Sungard might not be that bad of an idea.
This was mostly due to the fact that between 6.2 and 6.3 Blackboard switched their login from POST to GET (why they did this is anyone's guess-one representative from Blackboard told me seriously that it was Tomcat's fault this happened-*ROFL*).

 Film Comparison: Taps vs. Blackboard Jungle
The problem in "Blackboard Jungle" is that the disruptive behavior (violence, destruction of school property, calling out, and ignoring the teacher) of the majority of students prevents educators from teaching their lessons.
The stakeholders in "Blackboard Jungle" include the principal, teachers, students, parents of students, and the general public.
"Blackboard Jungle" was more successful in its strife to implement change in the school.

 DVD Verdict Review - The Blackboard Jungle
Morrow is dead, and Poitier is too successful at this stage of his life to dish on a film that was made when he couldn't even book a room at the same hotel as his white costars.
Occasionally quaint by contemporary standards of cinematic nastiness, the picture still packs a bruising punch in its violence, realistic dialogue, and a sense of alienation and helplessness often missing from the sunny films of the 1950s.
Blackboard Jungle remains an energetic and absorbing film experience—gritty, vital, hugely influential.

The atmospheric tale of a teacher's harrowing experience in the New York City school system stars Glenn Ford as Richard Dadier, an idealistic teacher assigned to a new school located in one of the poorest and ethnically diverse city neighborhoods.
This innovative and ultimately uplifting portrayal of a generation at odds with the world served as a seminal portrait of the darker side of the 1950s; however, it was laced with controversy as well, as it was withdrawn from the 1955 Venice Film Festival for showing an unflattering view of American high school life.
BLACKBOARD JUNGLE was withdrawn from the 1955 Venice Film Festival at the request of Ambassador Clare Boothe Luce, who felt the film was an unflattering look at American school life.

On Wednesday, the 90-year-old actor who starred in movies such as "The Blackboard Jungle," "Gilda" and "The Big Heat" was found dead in his home, police said.
A cause of death was not given, though Ford suffered a series of strokes in the 1990s.
One of his best-known roles was in the 1955 "The Blackboard Jungle," where he portrayed a young, soft-spoken teacher in a slum school who inspires a class full of juvenile delinquents to care about life.

Still, BLACKBOARD JUNGLE is a great leap forward from Hollywood's last examination of troubled youth, namely the Dead End Kids, aka the East End Kids, aka the Bowery Boys.
If the Bowery Boys were wise cracking punks whose golden hearts were only a little obscured by the grime of the slums, director Richard Brooks's jungle denizens are outright sociopaths.
BLACKBOARD JUNGLE may not contain Ford's best performance, but it's the best I've seen.

Ultimately, according to Sound and Glory, he needn't have bothered -- a producer for MGM was looking for a song to reflect the spirit of teenage rebellion in a new movie called Blackboard Jungle, and found what he was looking for...
Peter Ford, the son of Blackboard Jungle star Glenn Ford and 1930s MGM musical dancing legend Eleanor Powell, contacted me in 2003 to help set the record straight about how the song was introduced to the world via the movie.
When the movie was completed in the spring of 1955, the song was grafted over the opening credits and the rest, as they say, is Rock and Roll.

 Blackboard Jungle - Movie Review
Idealism in the public school system got its start here in 1955's Blackboard Jungle, based on the book that convinced America that our kids were not all angels and schools were not built from picket fence perfection.
Today, Blackboard Jungle is surprisingly dated and ineffective, as its picture of high school violence and perversity seems quaint in comparison to Columbine-style massacres and Mary Kay Letourneau.
Even the firey Sidney Poitier an Vic Morrow, playing the school's punks, seem set to a lower level than we've seen from them in later, mor compelling works.

Myself, I interrupt my holiday ennui to celebrate both my 100th post, and a year spent writing these weekday gems for The Blackboard Jungle.
I quote from my own generously endowed back catalogue: the second post at The Jungle.
Attempting to stem the tides of 'fuck', 'shit', and, inevitably, 'fuck this shit' in the classroom, without getting a rep for sending every bloody kid to stand in the hallway of shame, last year I developed the more nannyish admonishment: 'uh-uh, watch your language, it's Fudge or Sugar'.
