Happy 86th Birthday Sidney Poitier

To Sidney with Love

Born on the 20th of February, 1927, Poitier was the first black actor (African-American) to receive an Oscar in 1964 for Lilies of the Field (1963). I haven’t seen Lilies of the Field yet. But from the movies starring Poitier that I have watched, two of my favourites happen to be :-

To Sir, with Love (1967)

&

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967)
