# 3 Favorite Actor of the 60’s ~ Sidney Poitier

13 Jul

All you need to do is take a look at the list of movies that Sidney Poitier starred in during the 1960’s and you can understand why he is in my top five list of favorite stars of that decade;

A Raisin in the Sun
Paris Blues
Pressure Point
Lillies of the Field
The Long Ships
The Bedford Incident
The Greatest Story Ever Told
A Patch of Blue
The Slender Thread
To Sir, With Love
In the Heat of the Night
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
For the Love of Ivy
The Lost Man

His powerful on screen presence to this day mystifies me when I watch one of his movies. He is adept at playing any role, and each time it is as perfect as the last. Only nominated for the Oscar twice, winning once for his role in Lillies of the Field and winning an Honorary Oscar in 2002, for his extraordinary performances and unique presence on the screen and for representing the industry with dignity, style and intelligence. Not only is he one of the greatest actors of our time, but one of the greatest humanitarians, civil rights leaders, dignitaries but a true example of a true artist and outstanding human being
