In this special edition of the BIG show, we discuss the loss of a cinematic giant, Sir Sidney Poiter, who transitioned at the age of 94.
Poitier, who made his film debut in 1950, was a trailblazing pioneer who was the first consistent above-the-line Black movie star in the modern era. We discuss his cinematic legacy and how the man we refer to as “the Foundation,” changed the face of Hollywood forever.
We’ll have all that and more on Episode 486 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.
