I don't know if anybody still remembers the years-old beginning of this thread, but I just wanted to say, vis a vis Newman on Poitier making not movies but monuments: Happily, he won his Oscar for a movie that was completely unpretentious and unmonumental, but with a lot of humor and a lot of heart.

directed by Kenny Leon, who previously helmed

As we embark upon our concluding contributions herein, we haveta belatedly salute (among the many talents who
passed on last year) the first of two In Memoriams:

Dick Anthony Williams was one of the most stylish and intelligent actors to grace the entertainment world

from the late 60s on theatre ("Buck Time Buck White" was his breakthrough), television and film

He's perhaps best-known (if not specifically remembered) for his brief but generally
pivotal appearance opposite

in "Dog Day Afternoon".

Our favorite of all his pertinent perfs was in

where he channeled THE most informed, subtly-layered creativity and Third Eye artistry of the writer he portrayed;
his almost zen-like quietly serene satisfaction as he watched his work being performed was simply breathtaking.

Then again, that unostentatious but no less luminous quality informed, accentuated
and elevated everything his talent touched ...
