Hi, we met at a bookstore in Newark airport on 5/15/13. I was sorry i did not ask you to sign your book .I was on my way to Florida. cw
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.
Sidney Poitier was born and raised in Cat Island, Bahamas, not Miami. There should be a correction made about this.
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.
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.
