I first saw him in The Wilby Conspiracy. The Blood Diamond of the 1970s in a way.

RIP Mr. Poitier, and thank you.

HOLY SHIT I was literally just thinking about him last night and how he's getting up there in years and one day he won't be around any more.
This is spooky.






HEY GUYS! GUESS WHAT!

Gene Hackman is 91 years old.

I usually skip RIP threads
However, I thought this something to be highlighted

Pointier was fully aware many people of color, including viewers and fellow artists, looked up to him.
"It's been an enormous responsibility," Poitier told Winfrey. "And I accepted it, and I lived in a way that showed how I respected that responsibility. I had to. In order for others to come behind me, there were certain things I had to do."
