This article analysis four North-American films about teachers produced between 1950 and 1970 in which the role of female and male teachers are highlighted. In addition to the fi lm analysis, the research included the historical context and the academic curricula of the periods under study, the specific references of each film (plays, romance, biographies that were the origins of the productions), scripts, research in video rent stores and the contact with collectors. The outcomes allowed us to notice the decline of teachers´ hierarchic authority as well as point out some ambiguities in the representation of female and male models that were adapted to the political-ideological intentionality of each historical period.
