Entry: Sidney Poitier

Sidney Poitier directed Ghost Dad.

I don't think learning that would have been quite as depressing if I hadn't just watched A Raisin in the Sun for the first time and turned to Wikipedia to find out what else Mr. Poitier had been in, besides the better known films that spring to mind (In the Heat of the Night, To Sir with Love, et cetera). And I got Bill Cosby falling through floors. Great.

Oh, no! I still remember watching Ghost Dad when it was released on video and thinking it was the WORST film ever. And I was 13 when it came out. I can't believe Sidney Poitier directed this. Add this to the "Things I Wish I Didn't Learn from WIki."
