Sidney Poitier Was Born Today… Your Favorites Of His Films?

20 February 2011 6:26 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Today in history… February 20th, 1927, Sidney Poitier, a man who I’m sure needs absolutely no introduction on this website, was born in Miami, Florida. Happy 84th birthday Mr Poitier!

I’ve seen nearly all of his films, although it’s been months since I last revisited any of them. The last Sidney Poitier film I watched was Buck And The Preacher, some time last year. It’s one of my favorite Poitier films, along with In The Heat Of The Night, For Love Of Ivy, and Let’s Do It Again, the 2nd in the comedy/action trilogy of films he made with Bill Cosby in the 1970s.

I’d say that my preference leans towards his latter films – specifically those he had some creative control over, whether writing or directing, as the above films I listed indicate (In The Heat Of The Night aside).
