Sidney Poitier in "In The Heat Of The Night". Also starring Rod Steiger and Warren Oats. A pretty gutsy movie(topic wise )for the late sixties.

StormCnter Absolutely right. Safetydude, for your reward, I offer some trivia you might not know: Sidney Poitier's former brother-in-law was champion boxer, Archie Moore. And, he is officially entitled to be known as Sir Sidney Poitier, but declines to use the title.

MeiDei The ever-handsome [but politically wrong] Gregory Peck in - best guess: The Snows of Kilamanjaro? Can't see who she is.

StormCnter The female stars were Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward and I'm pretty sure that's not Gardner, do you agree?

I celebrate my joint birthday with Shirley MacLaine every year. When I was a student at Erasmus High School in NYC, I sang in the choir with Neil Diamond. Also at Erasmus High School I had an unrequited crush on a schoolmate who also would achieve international renown--chess genius Bobby Fischer. Jane Fonda won an Oscar for a role I turned down. Both of my husbands jointly starred in a 1971 movie. Walter Matthau hated me. He is famously quoted as saying I have "no more talent than a butterfly's fart". I have a shopping mall in my basement. Really. Who am I?

StormCnter The film is "100 Rifles", featuring Burt Reynolds, Welch, Jim Brown, Fernando Lamas and even had Lorenzo Lamas as an Indian boy. The Yaqui warrior holding Raquel's horses bridle is Shakespeare-trained stage actor Michael Forest, who looks nothing like an Indian in real life.
But Mei is awarded a Raquel Welch exercise video, "Total Beauty and Fitness". Raquel is one month older than I and it's obvious she aged much better.
