His Wiki profile says he was born in Miami, FL, but that he grew up in Cat Island, in the Bahamas. The whol bio doesn`t show here but it does state that.

Kim PennellDec 7, 2009

Sidney Poitier was born and raised in Cat Island, Bahamas, not Miami. There should be a correction made about this.

trinityOct 18, 2009

the measure of a man? He thinks he`s a man? wow he lost his temper when diane carroll laughed at him . he is not poised at all in real life. Dianne carroll is the poised one.

davidSep 23, 2009

WHAT A FAKE. HE PRETENDS TO HAVE MORALS AND INTEGRITY HE LOST MY RESPECT AFTER READING HDIANNE CARROLS BOOK. MEASURE OF A MAN WHAT A JOKE. HE CHEATED REPEATEDLY ON WIFE AND WHAT HE DID TO DIANNE CARROLL WAS INEXCUSABLE.
