* BritishAccent: An interesting variation is actually a plot-point; new headmaster Ralston insists that Chipping teach using the "[[LatinPronunciationGuide New Pronunciation]]" of Latin (a scholarly re-construction of the 1st century B.C. pronunciation -- ''e. g.'', "Cicero" pronounced "Kickero" [actually more like "Keekayro"]), whereas Chips prefers using the traditional English pronunciation ("Cicero" pronounced "Sisserro").

Added DiffLines:

* {{Adorkable}}: Chipping is fairly awkward when he first becomes a teacher, and has to grow into the job. Also, his clumsy courtship of Kathie is very endearing.
