THE DEFIANT ONES MOVIE CAST: SIDNEY POITIER and TONY CURTIS
Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis sign a laser disc cover for their movie The Defiant Ones.
Laser Disc cover signed:"Sidney Poitier" and "Tony Curtis". Color, 12¼x12¼. Laser disc not included. The Defiant Ones (1958) cast Poitier and Curtis as convicts escaped from a chain gang, chained together. They must work together to avoid capture, and gradually become friends despite their initial racial hostility. This film was producer Stanley Kramer's first of many successful directing efforts. It earned 9 Oscar nominations, including one each for Poitier, Curtis and Kramer, although it won only in the Best Original Screenplay category. SIDNEY POITIER, the first Black to be honored with an Academy Award for Best Actor (1963, Lilies of the Field), was the top box office star by 1967. That year, the actor, who had already won acclaim for Blackboard Jungle (1955) as well as The Defiant Ones, appeared in three popular films: In the Heat of the Night, To Sir With Love and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. In 2002 he received an honorary Oscar for his groundbreaking work as an actor, director and producer. Noticed first for his good looks, TONY CURTIS (1925-2010) showed real acting talent in The Defiant Ones, Some Like It Hot (1959) and - cast against type - in The Boston Strangler (1968). Formerly married to actress Janet Leigh, he is the father of actress Jamie Leigh Curtis. Lightly worn at corners. Fine condition.
