Black and white publicity photograph of Sidney Poitier for his film The Mark of the Hawk.
Photograph signed: "Best wishes/alway (sic)/Sidney Poitier". B/w, 8x10. Publicity photograph for the 1957 film, The Mark of the Hawk, which starred Poitier as Oban and Eartha Kitt as Renee. ©1958, Universal Pictures Corporation. Sidney Poitier (born in 1927), 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) and The Defiant Ones (1958, nominated for Best Actor), appeared in three popular films: In the Heat of the Night, To Sir With Love and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. On March 24, 2002, at the 74th annual Academy Awards, Poitier, who is also a Kennedy Center Awards honoree, was presented with an honorary Oscar for his groundbreaking work as an actor, director and producer. That night, history was made again as two Black performers captured the top two acting honors: Halle Berry was presented with the Academy Award for Best Actress (the first won by a Black woman) for Monster's Ball and Denzel Washington became the second Black man to earn the Best Actor Oscar (for Training Day). Slightly soiled at blank margins. Fine condition.
