The pressure to succeed is tremendous and some of the students form study groups while also spending a great many hours studying. Hart’s greatest challenge is contract law and his professor, Charles W. Kingsfield Jr. Using the Socratic method, Kingsfield challenges his students with questions demanding accuracy and creativity in their responses and often humiliating those who are unable to respond. As the school year progresses, Hart faces many challenges but befriends Susan Fields – unaware that she has a connection that affects their relationship. Finally, Hart accommodates himself to whatever might come his way, accepting a new set of priorities in his life.
Plot: A first-year law student struggles with balancing his coursework and his relationship with the daughter of a stern professor.

law school pressure and the pre-bionic woman
I have friends who have gone to law school and their subjective descriptions of how intense an experience that was seem to be validated in this now 30-year-old film. Houseman and Bottoms shine, the rest of the cast (while a bit too stuffy) seem to compliment them without flaw. I liked seeing a very young (unspoiled) Lindsey Wagner in her pre-bionic woman days. Truthfully, though certainly dated at this point, this film still held my interest. I was, however, disappointed in the last scene, for although it may have meant to be liberating for the Bottoms character to shift his priorities the timing, (upon receipt of his final grades) seemed ill chosen. Still, one can’t help but root for him through all of this. In the end one wonders if while retaining his idealism he sacrificed his sanity.

Very different from the TV series, but well worth seeing…
I loved the TV series “The Paper Chase” and watched it on CBS as well as when it switched to Showtime back in the early 1980s. Yet, despite my love for the show, I didn’t get around to seeing the original movie until now. The reason for seeing it now? Well, my wife bought me the first two seasons and it seemed like a good idea to finally see the movie and do it before I watched the other DVDs.

It’s pretty interesting that although the movie is VERY different from the show, they both are very good–but in different ways. While the TV series was a good family show, the movie was a bit more adult in tone as well as more cerebral and slower paced. This isn’t a bad thing really–just different. Plus the supporting cast if VERY different. Here are a few differences: Ford is present in both and is similar–except that he really needed a haircut in the movie. While his hairstyle was the rage in 1973, for an Ivy League brat, this didn’t look right and the TV character looked more the part.

Bell is an evil sociopath in the film–a truly nasty individual with definite signs of Asperger’s Syndrome. In the TV series, he’s a dumpy loser who somehow manages to make it into law school! There is no female law student in the movie. Instead of the red-headed platonic friend in the movie there’s a hot female sex/love interest played by Lindsay Wagner who is NOT a student but the daughter of the scary Professor Kingsfield! This major plot element in the movie is totally non-existent in the TV series and the sexual tension was omitted to make it more family-friendly. This is THE biggest difference between the two.

Timothy Bottoms is a nice guy as Hart but he’s also sexual and a man of the 1970s. The TV Hart simply never had sex or thought about sex and is a bit like the comic book character Archie–a nice, safe and hard-working young man. And this explains why later James Sevens (from the TV version) went on to play a priest in “The Father Dowling Mysteries”! I personally liked BOTH characters–one was a bit more realistic (Bottoms) but the other was more likable and sweet–and seeing him progress through the series was very satisfying.

So why did I give this movie an 8? Well, one of the biggest reasons is that it’s written and acted so darn well. Despite being a somewhat forgotten film today, it was marvelous from start to finish with many wonderful performances. John Houseman was brilliant and received an Oscar for a great performance. But the movie was certainly not all Houseman–with a lovely ensemble cast. Another reason I liked it was that the film was so amazingly original. You can’t find another movie like this one! And finally, I liked the gentle pacing and way it was directed–slow, subtle and very competent.

My advice is see them both–compared to a lot of the crap out there today, the film and show are shining beacons of quality.
