Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"The Sidney Poitier Collection" includes "Edge Of The City", "Something Of Value", "A Warm December" and "A Patch Of Blue". "Edge Of The City": Two New York City longshoremen Axel Nordmann (John Cassavetes), an Army deserter and Tommy Tyler (Sidney Poitier), an easy-going freight car loader whose growing friendship is threatened by Charles Malik (Jack Warden), a notably repellent punk. "Something Of Value": Peter McKenzie (Rock Hudson) and native boy Kimani (Poitier) are raised as brothers in the British colony of Kenya. But cruelty and intolerance drive them apart. Kimani becomes the leader of his people, the Mau Mau. After the slaughter of whites, Peter becomes vengeful but he relents and searches for his childhood friend with hopes of ending the killing. Peace proves elusive after Kimani's wife is killed and the Mau Mau leader runs away. Peter sets out after him for a final confrontation, only to find tragedy and redemption. "A Warm December": Dr. Matt Younger (Poitier) and his daughter (Yvette Curtis) arrive for a month-long visit to London for dirt-bike racing and unexpectedly, a new romance for the widowed Dr. Younger. His new love interest is the beautiful and playful Catherine (Esther Anderson) who seems to enjoy eluding Dr. Younger as much as she enjoys eluding the mysterious men who are following her. Their romance develops gradually as does the viewers' understanding of what is going on with this charming woman and the complications she brings with her. "A Patch Of Blue": Accidentally blinded by her prostitute mother, Rose-Ann, (Oscar(R) winner Shelley Winters) at the age of five, Selena D'Arcy (Elizabeth Hartman) spends the next 13 years confined in the tiny Los Angeles apartment that they share with "Ole Pa" (Wallace Ford), Selena's grandfather. One afternoon at the local park, Selena meets Gordon Ralfe (Sidney Poitier), a thoughtful young office worker whose kind-hearted treatment of her results in her falling in love with him, unaware that he is black. They continue to meet in the park every afternoon and he teaches her how to get along in the city. But when the cruel, domineering Rose-Ann learns of their relationship, she forbids her to have anything more to do with him because he is black. Selena continues to meet Gordon despite Rose-Ann's fury, who is determined to end the relationship for good.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Sidney Poitier Collection - Edge of the City This collection was excellent. I don't understand why Sidney doesn't have more oscars. Edge of the City was a beautiful story showing how race is not involved when you have true friends. The same is true with the Patch of Blue.A Warm December was a beautiful love story that all lovers would enjoy. You should definitely buy this collection. 12/31/2009
