When people think of iconic Old Hollywood stars from the 60s, it's hard not to think of the great Sidney Poitier. Born in the Bahamas on Cat Island, Poitier and his family lived in poverty and he had little formal education. He went to live with his brother when he was fifteen years old in Miami, Florida. At 18, he went to New York and worked menial jobs and had a brief career in the Army at a Veteran’s hospital. He spontaneously decided to audition at the American Negro Theater but was rejected due to his thick accent and poor performance, After dedicating six months to improve himself, he earned a bit part in a Broadway play after being spotted in a rehearsal. Many people consider him to be one of the greatest male stars of classic Hollywood cinema. Not only was Poitier a talented actor in his own right, but he also became the first actor of color to win The Academy Award for Best Actor, as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor both for his role in Lilies of the Field. As a groundbreaking actor, he starred in three successful films that dealt with plot lines and themes revolving around civil rights issues, discrimination and racism: To Sir with Love, In the Heat of the Night, and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner where he co-starred along legendary stars, Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn. In addition to being an accomplished actor, Poitier has directed several films of his own including Uptown Saturday Night, Let's Do It Again, A Piece of the Action, Stir Crazy, and Ghost Dad.
