Sidney Poitier totally ROCKED the 1960s!
A Patch of Blue (1965) -- a black man befriends a blind white girl who comes from a troubled family.
To Sir, with Love (1967) -- an American engineer takes a job teaching at a high school in the slums of London.
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (1967) -- a liberal, open-minded white couple (Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy) discover that their daughter's fiance is black.
Lilies of the Field (1963) -- an unemployed construction worker builds a chapel for a group of foreign nuns. In the final scene Homer teaches the nuns a song called "Amen." An inspirational movie with themes of faith, kindness and courage.
