Sir Sidney Poitier, KBE (pronounced /ˈpwætɪeɪ/; born February 20, 1927) is an Academy Award-, Golden Globe-, BAFTA- and Grammy award-winning Bahamian-American actor, film director, author, and diplomat. He broke through as a star in acclaimed performances in American films and plays, which, by consciously defying racial stereotyping, gave a new dramatic credibility for black actors to mainstream film audiences in the Western world. [1]

In 1963, Poitier became the first black man to win an Academy Award for Best Actor[2] for his role in Lilies of the Field.[3] The significance of this achievement was later bolstered in 1967 when he starred in three very well received films—To Sir, With Love; In the Heat of the Night; and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner—making him the top box office star of that year.[4]

Poitier has directed a number of popular movies such as Uptown Saturday Night, and Let's Do It Again (with friend Bill Cosby), and Stir Crazy (starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder). In 2002, 38 years after receiving the Best Actor Award, Poitier was chosen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to receive the Honorary Award, designated "To Sidney Poitier in recognition of his remarkable accomplishments as an artist and as a human being."[5]

Since 1997 he has been the Bahamian ambassador to Japan.

Sir Michael Caine CBE (born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite Jr. on 14th March 1933 in London, England), is an English film actor who has appeared in more than one hundred films, and is only one of two actors to have received Academy Award nominations for acting (leading or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s (Jack Nicholson is the other).[1] Considered one of British cinema's elite actors, he became known for a number of notable critically acclaimed performances, particularly in the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in films such as Zulu (1964), The Ipcress File (1965), Billion Dollar Brain (1967) and others as Harry Palmer, the woman-chasing title character in Alfie (1966), The Italian Job (1969), Get Carter (1971), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), Educating Rita (1983), Oscar-winning performances for supporting actor in Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and The Cider House Rules (1999), as Nigel Powers in the spoof Austin Powers in Goldmember (2003), and more recently as Alfred Pennyworth, the butler from the Batman film series. Caine was knighted in 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his contribution to cinema. He is noted for retaining his strong cockney accent.

The Wilby Conspiracy is a 1975 thriller film directed by Ralph Nelson and written by Rodney Amateau, based on the novel by Peter Driscoll. It had a limited release in the US.
