Maggie Smith stars as the titular Edinburgh schoolmistress, a role for which she received a Best Actress Oscar.
Miss Jean Brodie nurtures her pupils in a flamboyant style, becoming quite an inspiration to the girls.
She presents life as one long romantic adventure while espousing her wisdom on art and music, and passionately defending fascism.
Ultimately, one of her pupils betrays her, first by seducing the man Miss Jean Brodie loves and finally by claiming that her teacher's destructive influence caused the death of a fellow student.
