There was a British film in the late 50's - early 60's (ish) about a new music teacher at a school, who inspires his charges to do great things...etc.
He also resorts to playing pub piano for cash (for some reason) and is sacked from his job. The children rebel in his support... Blah, blah...
It also featured a well-scrubbed, Brylcreemed, trumpet-playing youth.
In my mind, I have always had Kenneth More as the teacher, and Jeremy Brett as the juvenile lead; I also had the the title as something obvious, like, "The Happiest Days of Your Life" (or a variation thereon).
But I can find no such film in the filmography of either of he above, and searches for every possible title that I can think of are fruitless.
I know I didn't imagine it - I even remember at which cinema I saw it!
Does the above ring a bell with anyone?
