    Athough I was a very young child – i remember well this excellent film – and the brilliant performances of both Steiger and Poitier. It is kind of seared into my mind. I know later it was made into a TV series with Carroll O’Conner (best known as Archie Bunker – “All in the Family” which was a noble effort – but nothing can match the original film and I would love to see it again – withm y Honey/Hubby on Blue-Ray! Thanks.
