R.I.P. Sidney Poitier, 94


Recommended Posts

One of the greatest actors of his generation.  What a legacy he leaves behind.  In the Still of the Night, To Sir with Love, Guess Whos Coming to Dinner, They Call Me Mr. Tibbs.  Great movies and he always seemed like a class act.

RIP.

LOVED that movie and the music.   

Almost forgotten from that film is the band who perform in it, The Mind Benders (you might recall Wayne Fontana).   "Groovy Kind of Love" is one of their biggest hits.  And my wedding song (Phil Collins' version).

The MindBenders were in the flick, To Sir With Love.    Apart from always liking their song, no other connection with "Groovy Kind of Love" and the movie.   I just went total non-sequitur.

I saw the movie as a kid with a baby sitter. She spent 10 to 15 hours a week with us.     I have fond memories of her. (RIP Pam ).  I watched the movie with my 2 daughters when they were around 10 or so and both remember it fondly.    The Lulu song is generational.   

I remember the scene in the movie, in gym class, with the weaker kid. Who can’t associate with that.
