Three of my favorite all-time stars together in one film? Pop the popcorn and sign me up! Not only am I obsessed with westerns, I can never get enough of this film’s three stars: Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, and Harry Belafonte.
I also love the fact that Sidney Poitier did more than just star in the movie, he directed it! For whatever reasons, I am floored by actors/actresses who also direct the film they star in. The talent level to pull something like that off is mind-blowing.
Buck and the Preacher (1972) isn’t shown on television very often, unfortunately, so you may have to make a bit of an effort to see it. It is, however, worth it.
