    This is sad. He always played his roles with more than a degree of dignity and gravitas.

    Alex.

    I enjoyed both of the above but my favourite Poitier role was Virgil Tibbs. I've seen "In the Heat of the Night" several times and it never fails to stir something inside me. Rod Steiger was also perfect for his role.

    I remenber going to a Harry Belefonte concert once, and he went on for several minutes about how old Sydney Poitier was. OLD... by 11 days.  They were quite close friends.
