"Martha Scott’s brilliant performance stands out among a host of great ones in this unforgettable and heartbreaking old movie about a woman who won every heart – except the one she truly cherished. Yes, this touching film belongs to Martha Scott who seems to have saved her best for Cheers for Miss Bishop.
The narrative covers the life of a dedicated teacher who puts her own interests on the back burner, preferring to devote her energies for the advancement of education at the Midwestern University. The role was tailor-made for the charming and dignified Scott who did not disappoint either director Tay Garnett or her innumerable adoring fans across the U.S.
Scott’s ability to convey even the subtlest emotions with ease and conviction is what sets her apart as a fabulous artist. Excellent performances by her co-actors, insightful direction by Tay Garnett and imaginative camera work by lens man Hal Mohr superbly support her memorable contribution to the success of this Hollywood classic.
Seldom has an actress been credited with carrying a movie single handedly, and Scott is surely among the exceptions. Her poise and self-assurance lends an aura of invincibility to the character she portrays.
Experience this moving saga of a woman who, though heartbroken, faced life with dignity and élan till the very end."
"Cheers for Miss Bishop is one classic that no aspiring actress or fan of Martha Scott should miss. It portrays vividly what a person can achieve through sheer determination. Probably what made the movie such a memorable one is the fact that the character she plays resembles her own life of struggle and victory over circumstance that few would face with such grit and courage. I personally would recommend this fabulous Hollywood classic to all young ladies who seem to be groping for a meaning in life."

"This is surely Martha Scott’s best gift to the world, and one, which I have treasured and cherished for many years. I remember how downcast I was when I was told of my husband’s crippling injuries during World War II in Italy, and also recall vividly my aunt insisting on my seeing this movie. I had gone reluctantly, but returned home inspired by this fabulous commentary on life and Miss Bishop’s victories. Thanks a2zcds.com for preserving this great movie on DVD. I am certain it will uplift many a sinking hearts, as it did mine many years ago!"
