5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL MOVIE! OKAY DVD Aug. 13 2000
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite movies. Sidney Poitier falls for housekeeper "Ivy". A must see film. The bare-bones dvd doesn't have much to offer. You get the widescreen and standard versions, thats it. As of 08/13/2000, this dvd is still available at Columbia House. Worth a look!

Sidney Poitier is one of my favorite actors and he links up nicely with Abby Lincoln. A very cute love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful movie about Black Love May 17 2005
By Psboston7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie was set in the 60's (68 to be exact) and it had the music of one of like your typical New York romance flix think "Barefoot in the Park". Ivy (Abbey Lincoln)is a black maid to a well-to-do white family on Long Island well Ivy decides she wants to move into the city to further her education and to live amongst people like her self (black) the family just doesn't want Ivy to go they don't understand why she wants to go, they consider Ivy family... well as much as one can consider the Maid a part of your family. The family is made up of Carrol O' Conner, Beau Bridges, Nan Martin and Laurie Peters. The children soon realize that Abbey wants to leave because she wants to have a life or her own which includes a man. The son and daughter decide to "hook" Ivy up with Sidney Poitier who owns a trucks service that distributes for their Father's dept store. Sidney agrees begrudgingly to this because Beau has a way of "convincing" him (no spoilers here).

It's a cute movie Abbey Lincoln is very stylish, shy yet smart as well and Sidney Poitier was clever, smooth, hip and does wonders with his expressions LOL. There is this scene where Beau Bridges says something pretty racist and I was thinking... "Wow! did he just say that?" but Sidney's face conveyed a pause... (like he took his measure of Beau to keep to himself for later) then moved smoothly along in the conversation. As a african american watching this movie it reminded me that there are so few movies out there that potrays black love in such a positive way and I know this was a old flix but it still was a surprising pleasurable find. I didn't know what to expect but it will go on my classic favorite list of movies for sure. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Universal Classic Love Story Dec 9 2005
By Ebony Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
When I first saw Coming To America, I was so happy to finally see an African American romance. I was thinking 'Wow!! Wish we had more of those'... until I stumbled upon For the Love of Ivy. What an excellent love story. I wonder what other beautiful African American romances are out there yet to be re-discovered?

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR LOVE OF IVY Feb. 13 2007
By BORN 2 CREATE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. A REAL "CHICK FLICK", OR, FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN'T MIND A GOOD LOVE STORY! I LOVE SYDNEY POITIER AND ABBEY LINCOLN IN THIS FILM. HOWEVER, A MUCH YOUNGER BEAU BRIDGES REMINDS YOU OF WHAT A GREAT ACTOR HE IS, AND CARROLL O'CONNOR -- ALTHOUGH ONLY SEEN IN JUST A FEW SCENES -- FULLY COMMANDS HIS ROLE AS THE FATHER.

5 STARS WITHOUT A DOUBT!

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR LOVE OF IVY March 12 2007

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU SAY ABOUT A SIDNEY POITIER MOVIE, BUT HOW WONDERFUL IT IS TO SEE AGAIN AND AGAIN. THIS ONE RANKS UP THERE WITH "IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT", AND "LILLIES OF THER FIELD". SO I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR OTHERS TO ENJOY.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL MEMORABLE AFTER 40 YEARS Feb. 26 2008
By Andy Bea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I haven't seen For Love of Ivy since 1968, but in my mind's eye I can still visualize whole scenes. Now THAT's a great movie.
