Back in the Day: “Lean on Me” (March ’89)



In this next episode of “Back in the Day,” I stretch 25 years back and look at Morgan Freeman’s first lead role.  More important than how good or not-so-good a movie it might have been are the personal connections I still have to it.  Click on the picture above and learn a few things about Lean on Me, the film about controversial high school principal Joe Clark who believed he had no choice but to fight fire with a little bit of his own fire.

  1. I liked your review, I suppose I also agree with your rating at a pragmatic level. Emotionally though, I love this movie. I still watch it every single blessed time I see it on TV.
