SIDNEY POITIER Sidney Poitier signs a release form for the News Syndicate Co., Inc., New York, New York. Typed Document Signed: "Sidney Poitier", ¼p, 8x10. Dated by Poitier: "8/14/58". Release Form in letter form to Poitier from the News Syndicate Co., Inc., New York, New York. Begins: "Gentlemen". In full: "In consideration of the publicity to be given to me and which may arise herefrom, my consent is hereby irrevocably given to you, your assignees and licensees, and to the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate, Inc., and to its subscribers and licensees, to use my name, picture, or portrait, in publications for editorial or promotional purposes, excluding, however, commercial advertising." Sidney Poitier, the first Black man 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). Lightly soiled. Fine condition.
