(1967), which treated the subject of interracial marriage; and In the Heat of the Night (1967). He turned to directing in 1971; among his films are Buck and the Preacher (1972), A Patch of Blue (1973), and Stir Crazy (1980). In 1991 he portrayed Thurgood Marshall in the Emmy-winning television film Separate but Equal.The photo has been autographed on the front by Sidney Poitier.................BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION............
