    What a Wonderful Movie for a Wonderful Actor

    This is one of my favorite Sidney Poitier movies. He has so much humanity that shines out of him. I have watched him for so many years and have loved his work since I was young. The first movie that really touch me was "A Patch of Blue". Life isn't always easy, but there are people in the world that do make a difference in our lives, whether in person or by their works. Sidney Poitier is one of those persons. Thank you for your humanity Sidney.
