Morrissey mentions this film in [[Mention::Autobiography]] as one he'd watch with his sister:<br>
"My sister and my mother never sing, but my sister and I were united in the glorification of the social problem film – a fly-by television treat never to be missed, especially the school-as-cesspit honesty of [[Spare The Rod]] (1961), [[Term Of Trial]] (1962), [[Up The Down Staircase]] (1967) or [[To Sir, With Love]] (1967), wherein slum kids are shown to endure in sufferance the pointlessness of secondary education (for what use is anything at all that is secondary?). [[Blackboard Jungle]] (1957) had been the first to free teachers – spouting resentment at the no-hope kids who were, by birth, three rungs below scum – and boundaries of frankness snapped. Jackie and I would watch as many films as we could, long before the days when television channels refused to transmit monochrome films for fear that no one would watch."
