Sidney Poitier is excellent, he should be recognized as one of America's greatest actors. Mr. Poitier must be given credit for breaking down some of the walls that hindered black actors in those days. Tony Curtis, though not the greatest of actors, does a very credible job in his role, Bronx accent not withstanding. In fact, the characters are so well constructed that the audience feels empathy toward them. Director Stanley Kramer has done one of his best jobs ever. This was a very risky movie to be making in 1958; but the control of the huge movie studios were slipping, and in fact, this was an independent production, which is why this movie got made in that day.
Enjoy a movie that was ahead of its time in 1958. It's not only a good movie, it's also an historically important movie.
Reordered. Second set working good. Must have received a dud.
Today we have new realms of prejudice and the racist perpetrators are not just white, but many blacks as well. Yet the solution remains the same.
