Product Description:
TCM Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Sidney Poitier (4FE)

BLACKBOARD JUNGLE (1955) - 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 (1957) - 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 (1957) - 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 (1965) - 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 fi lm won Shelly Winters an OscarĀ®* for her role as Selina's bigoted, abusive mother.

Product Description:
A novice teacher faces a class of rowdy, undisciplined working-class punks in this classic film that reflected some of the problems and fears of teens in the 60s. Sidney Poitier gives one of his finest performances as Mark Thackeray, an out-of-work engineer who turns to teaching in London's tough East End. The graduating class, led by Denham (Christian Roberts), Pamela (Judy Geeson) and Barbara (Lulu, who also sings the hit title song), sets out to destroy Thackeray as they did his predecessor by breaking his spirit. But Thackeray, no stranger to hostility, meets the challenge by treating the students as young adults who will soon enter a work force where they must stand or fall on their own. When offered an engineering job, Thackeray must decide if he wants to stay.

Product Description:
Mastered in HD! Nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture and winner of the Best Actor Oscar (Sidney Poitier, In the Heat of the Night). Homer Smith (Poitier), an itinerant handyman, is driving through the Arizona desert when he meets five impoverished nuns. Stopping to fix their leaky farmhouse roof, Homer discovers that not only will the Mother Superior not pay him for the job, but she also wants him to build their chapel - for free! Hesitant at fist, Homer soon finds himself single-handedly raising the chapel and the financing. But although he will not receive a monetary reward, Homer knows that when his work is done, he'll leave that dusty desert town a much better place than when he found it. Ralph Nelson (Duel at Diablo) wonderfully directed this gem of a motion picture featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by the great Ernest Haller (Gone with the Wind, Mildred Pierce).

Product Description:
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award(r) for Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy) and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiance John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance. In GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER,director Stanley Kramer has created a masterful study of society's prejudices.
