    "It's wonderful to have a friend."

    A Patch of Blue is the third movie I watched today for Sidney Poitier's birthday. The film tells an interesting story and it tells it pretty well. There are some really good moments here and the cast puts in some good work.

    "Oh God, please, look down and give me strength!"

    Today is Sidney Poitier's 93rd birthday, so I watched a few of his films. A Raisin in the Sun is one of those films that is clearly based on a play, but unlike some other people, I've never really had a problem with films that feel "stagey". The story of this one is solid, but the cast is what makes it work. Claudia McNeil, Ruby Dee, and Diana Sands all put in strong work here and Poitier is the MVP. I think Poitier deserved an Oscar nomination for this one.
