Welcome to the Blu-Ray Boutique, a part of Film Obsessive Radio! Hosts Tim Rosenberger and Rosalie Lewis celebrate Black History Month by honoring the great Sidney Poitier, who passed away about a month-and-a-half ago. Rosalie and Tim discuss why Poitier was so important and what he meant to them while focusing on two of his many famous films: the 1961 drama A Raisin in the Sun and the 1963 comedy-drama Lilies of the Field. For the latter, Poitier won the Oscar for Best Leading Actor, the first time a black actor (male or female) had won such an award (Hattie McDaniel had won for Best Supporting Actress for Gone with the Wind (1939)). The Criterion Collection released A Raisin in the Sun on DVD and Blu-ray, and Kino Lorber released Lilies of the Field on DVD and Blu-ray.
