Sidney Poitier cemented his ascent to the Tinseltown firmament with this Guy Green (Light in the Piazza) directed drama about a friendship between a black office worker (Poitier) and an uneducated blind white girl (Elizabeth Hartman in her screen debut). Selina d’Arcy lives with her racist, prostitute mother Rose-Ann (Shelley Winters, in an Academy Award® winning performance) and her alcoholic grandfather Ole Pa (character great Wallace Ford in his final film performance) and has scant knowledge of the outside world. But a chance encounter with the kindly Gordon Ralfe alters the trajectory of her life. This groundbreaking drama’s glorious black and white photography from Robert Burks (Vertigo) shines as never before in this crisp 1080p HD presentation, while Jerry Goldsmith’s soaring score has all the room it needs to deliver its sweep.
