Just watched a short on TCM about Mr. Poitier, always has been an exceptional actor, one of my favorites. The Lilies of the Field, and In the Heat of the Night. God I love that film. When he backhanded that proud southern gentleman, heh heh. Felt like standing up and shouting, Fuck Yeah! It also had another of my favorite actors, Rod Steiger. I have no idea what his politics are these days, he's probably a lefty and quite frankly I don't give two hoots. He made some fine movies, gave me and many people some great moments and memories and I thank him for that.
