Mr. Poitier became the first Black man to win an Academy Award for best actor in 1964 for his role in “Lilies of the Field.” Sadly, we lost Mr. Poitier in 2022 and screen this film in his honor.
After a 10-day Hawaiian vacation, Joanna Drayton (Katharine Houghton) returns to her San Francisco home with John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), her brand-new fiancé. Although he’s a successful doctor and a Nobel Prize candidate, her parents, Christina (Katharine Hepburn) and Matthew (Spencer Tracy), are taken aback when they discover John is black.
