abstract
"Using clips, rare outtakes, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with friends like Harry Belafonte, Ruby Dee, and Ossie Davis to tell the remarkable story of Sidney Poiter. Poiter claims he was simply in the right place at the right time, but others reveal that he made his own luck seizing upon a moment in history when doors started to open. No matter the role, Sidney Poiter suffuses his characters with a transcendent dignity that glues one to the screen. Here, clips from The Blackboard Jungle, The Defiant Ones, Lilies of the Field, and more relive his landmark career"--Container back cover.
