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.

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 ...

Some careers are chiseled with silent integrity, imposing charisma and a universal uniqueness of character and compellingness that needs no words to convey its stature.

Woody Strode was great in everything, even Kingdom of the Spiders. And he played in the CFL. What a guy!

By the way, we find it INCREDIBLY revealing there's been no (at least publically) nitwit cowardly cyber-swings at the gents commemorated in this Appreciation as there was recently with its female counterpart and how 'unseemly' it was to spotlight WOMEN of color when this site is filled-with-overflowing images of girls in all genres and nobody ever has a damn thing to say about how possibly 'indelicate' it is in that pigmentary vanilla vein.

As we've long advocated, the truly intelligent beings wherever they are in the universe had best stay away from this puny
little back-galaxy planet with its still profoundly-primitive species.

'Cause this 'race' just ain't READY for 'em.
