A world apart for Elizabeth Harman. She lacks fury, because she has just one breakdown and is too strong for resist the humiliations. Winters is so convincing in such a oprobious role, that she deserved her oscar.

Sidney Poitier’s transformation from individual performer to all-encompassing symbol of an entire race as the lone black star of prominence is evident by the mid-60s. His thankless role of therapist to an alt-right Bobby Darin in Pressure Point was a red flag of this happening, as was his great work as a “respectable” character in Lilies of the Field. The sexuality, reservoirs of fire, and l... read more

A Patch of Blue

“Sidney Poitier’s transformation from individual performer to all-encompassing symbol of an entire race as the lone black star of prominence is evident by the mid-60s. His thankless role of therapist to an alt-right Bobby Darin in Pressure Point was a red flag of this happening, as was his great work as a “respectable” character in Lilies of the Field. The sexuality, reservoirs of fire, and loose physicality in films like A Raisin in the Sun and The Defiant Ones is slowly giving way to transitioning him to a living marble statue.   Into this change comes 1965’s A Patch of Blue in which he engages with a supremely chaste romance with a blind girl (Elizabeth Hartman) in a narrative that broadly sweeps his black skin and her blank eyes as the same type of socially ostracizing thing” read more

" Sidney Poitier as Gordon Ralfe and Elizabeth Hartman as Selina D’Arcey Selina convinces her grandfather to take her to the park, where she happens to meet Gordon Ralfe, an educated and soft-spoken black man working night shifts in an office. The two quickly become friends, meeting at the park almost every day. Gordon learns that she was blinded at the age of five when Rose-Ann (Shelley Winters) threw chemicals on her while attempting to hit her husband, and also that she was raped by one of"
