Eclectic Tastes


I know this clip is not a piece of music but it was 'music to my ears' last night when I watched it with my father at his house.


We were both spellbound by this movie.....the acting, the drama, the suspense. I remember seeing it the year it was made in 1967. I feel it is a classic movie in the true sense of the word....one that changed people's perspective about racism and one that would be remembered the next day. Not many of those around today.

  2. I love the classic line " They call me Mr Tibbs!" Fantastic film. I also love Sidney Poitier in " To Sir with Love " one of my all time favourite films. I get a chill when a very young Lulu sings the theme song.

    1. Lulu! I forgot all about her! She was HUGE (successful I mean) for a little while that year. Great memories!

  3. The YouTube clip isn't working but I knew immediately it was Sidney Poitier from To Sir With Love. I've been a fan of that movie since I was a child. And the theme song always brings a tear.

  4. This is a great film! Anything with Sidney Poitier in it is worth watching. He's such a great actor. My favourite with him in it is 'To Sir With Love'.

    1. It is called 'In the Heat Of the Night'. It's quite something for it's time and location.

  8. Loved Sidney Poitier! I believe my favorite of his was the one where he built a church, cool picture! Can't remember for sure what it was called, maybe Lilies of the Field?
