I’ve never watched this film in full. Excited to watch it. Did you like it?

I love the moth ridden abortion mill at the climax. I like to pretend Beah Richards is the same character as the wife in ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?’ But, honestly, the moths!

It's iconic because it established the Black man as authority in movies and Poitier is excellent in it.

Awesome movie, great soundtrack (the title song is everything) and Steiger and Poitier are outstanding.

OP here. Never watched the film but have seen episodes of the tv series. My grandmother would watch reruns when I was a kid. I’m excited for the film.

I just remember Rod Steiger being really good at chewing gum.

Wow. This film was terrific. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
