It is difficult to judge who has acted best? Spencer Tracey or Katharine Hepburn or Sidney Poitier. Their dialogue delivery is simply superb! And their expression on actual encounter is just seen to be believed. When Sidney tells his father, you see your self as black man while I see my self as MAN. I was reminded by Irving Wallace novel,“The Man”
Parents must show this movie to their teenager children, One of the best films in last 50 years.
