Product Description

Product Description

A black man's burgeoning love affair with a blind white girl is complicated by her racist, controlling mother.

One of the first studio films to deal with interracial romance (or even the possibility of it), A Patch of Blue was a huge hit upon its release, appealing to those looking for both social protest and a smart date movie. Sidney Poitier plays Gordon, a compassionate stranger who befriends a blind white girl named Selina (Elizabeth Hartman). Selina, the next thing to a shut-in, can only judge people by their voices, and Gordon's is unusually patient, kind. Troubles ensue when Selina's abusive mother (Shelley Winters in her second Oscar-winning performance) happens upon the pair during one of their park rendezvous. Ivan Dixon plays Poitier's militant brother, and veteran Wallace Ford appears as Selina's kindly lush of a grandfather. Jerry Goldsmith earned an Oscar nomination for his lilting piano theme, surely one of the simplest, most effective pieces of music to grace a Hollywood film. --Glenn Lovell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
I finally had the chance to see this movie a couple of nights ago. As usual, Sidney Poitier did not disappoint; complemented by a stellar cast of supporting actors.

Riveting, heart-wrenching, touching....I was drawn in from the opening scenes and didn't budge during this entire film, something that doesn't often happen. The acting of the entire cast was so good.

At times, this is a very difficult film to watch, especially the abusive nature of Shelly Winter's relationship to her now-blind daughter and the bigotry. But it was also a story of love, hope and redemption.

The relationship between Sidney Poitier and Elizabeth Hartman was warm, believable and touching throughout. I think they both should have received Oscars for their roles in this film too, in addition to Shelly Winters.

Be prepared to be moved and perhaps to tears (as I was) by this film. Unforgettable.
