Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Sidney Poitier

Films Include

Blackboard Jungle

Racial and sexual tensions. Violence. Gangs. Apathy. Hot-button issues in schools today were tackled in Blackboard Jungle, with Glenn Ford as an idealistic inner-city teacher and Sidney Poitier, in a star-making performance, as a teen misfit.

Edge Of The City

Two laborers (Poitier and John Cassavetes) face corruption on the New York waterfront and bond across society's black/white divide in this directing debut by Martin Ritt (Sounder, Norma Rae). The powerful cast includes Jack Warden and Ruby Dee.

Something Of Value

In colonial Kenya, former childhood playmates Peter (Rock Hudson) and Kimani (Poitier) have maintained a deep, if unlikely, friendship. But with the bloody Mau Mau uprising, the men discover that even the strongest bond may not be stronger than the cry for freedom.

A Patch Of Blue

Selina (Elizabeth Hartman) is blind and white. Helping her see the world anew is kindly Gordon Ralfe (Poitier), who is black, though Selina doesn't know it. This impactful film won Shelly Winters an Oscar for her role as Selina's bigoted, abusive mother.
