Editorial Reviews

Look at the too-cool-to-cope kids in Jaime Escalante's class at East L.A.'s tough Garfield High, and many will say they see a bunch of losers. Escalante sees scholars. How he cajoles, instructs, challenges and inspires his no-expectations barrio kids to pass the daunting Calculus Advanced Placement Test forms the amazing heart of Stand and Deliver [Side A], starring Edward James Olmos and Lou Diamond Phillips. Paterson, New Jersey's Eastside High is the setting for Lean on Me [Side B], starring Morgan Freeman as bat-and-bullhorn-toting principal Joe Clark, whose controversial methods turned the failing school around and made Clark a national symbol of tough-love education. His message: Don't lean on excuses, drugs or anger. Lean on yourself and me...and learn. School's now in session with these two true-life tales!
Disc would be blank with no picture because both sides of the disc play, Stand and deliver is on one side of the disc and Lean on me is on the other side.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Winners, 1 Package January 17, 2007
Format:DVD
You simply can't go wrong with this DVD containing two outstanding films on educators who inspire their students in two utterly different ways.

In "Stand and Deliver" Edward James Olmos, almost unrecognizable, rightly earned an Oscar Nomination for his portrayal of an idealistic teacher in a run-down school. He makes extraordinary efforts to connect and motivate his students. He is a shining example of that cliche term "No one cares how much you know until the know how much you care." Olmos's character cares more than any teacher I have ever met myself. Awesomely inspiring!

Morgan Freeman's role in "Lean on Me" is typical of the kind of roles he's particularly good at: "My way or the highway." He nearly sinks his own efforts to turn around a failing school by acting as if he ALONE is the only one that can. This is a lesson for every administrator out there: Trust Your Staff/Facutly. Give your staff and facutly the respect they are entitled to and they will work for you and the students much better than if you brow beat them and circumvent their authority as professional educators. It is only when Freeman's character learns this that things begin to go his well-intentioned way.

As a 16 year veteran teacher I love nothing more than inspirational stories about education. Both of these films are now available in one package and definitely worth the purchase! If you are moved by other stories in the same vein, then check out "Mr. Holland's Opus", "To Sir with Love", "The Blackboard Jungle", "Dead Poet's Society", "Take the Lead", and "Akeelah and the Bee."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movies about educators March 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this disk for "Stand and Deliver", which I knew was a great story, and got "Lean on Me" - another excellent truth-based education story - as a bonus. It was also the only listing I've seen for a "Stand and Deliver" DVD in 1.66:1 widescreen (although filmed that way).

I originally complained that the DVD was presented in 4:3 TV ratio despite the "Product Details":

# Language: English
# Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only. Read more about DVD formats.)
# Aspect Ratio: 1.66:1
# Number of discs: 1

I have since discovered that these films, like many from the same period, were filmed using the full 35mm negative, but intended to be cropped to modest widescreen in *projection*. This can be approximated with your widescreen TV (Panasonic anyway) by "Zoom" to fill the screen horizontally - giving you 1.78:1 W/S, and approximately what the director intended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two excellent movies for the cost of one! July 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
[ASIN:B000K2UGZM Stand and Deliver/Lean on Me] I volunteer in a juvenile detention facility, usually helping teenagers with their school work. They are not allowed newspapers or television, but they do watch videos. I purchased these because they are based on true stories and I hoped they might be inspiring for the kids.

Not only do they inspire the kids, but they seem to inspire the teachers as well!

I believe these DVDs would be excellent for any parent and preteen-to-teenage child.

It is well worth the cost to purchase these.

1.0 out of 5 stars frustrating May 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this mainly to get Lean On Me. I viewed the DVD and found it contained Stand and Deliver only. There was only one DVD in the packet, so I thought there might be a main menu to select the movie that I wanted to see. After Stand and Deliver was over, there was a menu, but it was only to view Stand and DEliver again. I tried flipping the DVD over, but it did not work. I notified Amazon about this, and the promptly sent me another copy. It was exactly the same. I ended up having to mail both copies back to Amazon. They refunded me only partially of what I initially paid. I don't understand this, as I did not get the product I thought I was purchasing. It indeed was false advertising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movies June 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I like these two movies because they are both true story's. Stand and Deliver is a movie I've seen before. Lean On Me is a movie I haven't seen till I bought this dvd. Lean On me is a very good movie. I think it is better then Stand and Deliver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stand and Deliver with Lean on ME July 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This combination DVD is an excellent educational tool that may inspire your students. I suggest having a classroom discussion after students have viewed the film to help them understand how it relates to their school experiences. Even though these films were made a few decades ago, the issues are still relevant today.

I have the greatest job in the world - I'm a teacher! Both of these movies remind me how important my job is and how much of a positive influence I can be in the lives of my students.
