Sidney Poitier 83 years

American actor Sir Sidney Poitier (b. 1927) reaches the honorable age of 83 today. Congratulations, sir!

So, he was pretty hot in the 1950's and 1960's. Real eye candy!

With Tony Curtis in The Defiant Ones (1958), performances that gained them both an Academy Award nomination.

Can you hand jive, baby? To Sir, with Love (1967).

Tender moment with Abbey Lincoln in For Love of Ivy (1968).

Having a blast with Anthony Perkins and a movie camera.

With Harry Belafonte and Charlton Heston at a Civil Rights March in 1963.

Great choice in photographs. I always though Sidney was so cool in "To Sir, With Love." And he always had such great looking suits!
