For Love of Ivy Reviews

I 've seen this movie at least a hundred times, and it never seems to bore me. I love the interaction between the characters, Ivy(Abby Lincoln) and Jack (Sidney Poitier). Oddly enough during the filming of this movie, sparks were flying between these two, so much so that Mr. Poitier proposed to Ms. Lincoln after the film was finished. They lived together for a while, then for one reason or another separated for while. Entered Ms. Diane Carroll who came on the scene and that was as we say was the end of any hope of reconcilliation between Lincoln and Poitier.

Sidney and Diane did a broadway play of Porky and Bess which was later put on film and directed by Otto Priminger. The Leading role of Bess was played by none other then Dorthy Dandridge...who Sidney also fell in love with, but to his own failings, because of the more than hot and torrid affair between Dandridge and Priminger whom she bore a child for. The couple never married, due to the racial climate of the times, but their child was born with a rare disease and required to be institutionalized for some time. After Dandridge 's death, Priminger collected his daughter from the institution and move back to Germany, where he and she lived until his death. Oddly enough he said how much she remined him of Dorothy, in that she looked exactly like her mother. No one ever heard anything of her again. I love Sidney Poitier as an actor, I have several of his films...Blackboard Jungle, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, A Patch of Blue, To Sir with Love, The Jackal, Buck and the Preacher, The Long Ships, A Raisin in the Sun, They Call Me Mr. Tibbs, A Piece of the Action, Uptown Saturday Night, Lillies of the Field, In the Heat of the Night, Pressure Point, No Way Out, Sneakers, The Definant Ones, The Bedford Incident, The Mark of the Hawk, The Organization, The Wilby Conspirarcy, The Secret Life of Noah Dearborn, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and last but not least The Last Brickmaker in America. Yeah....I guess you couild say that I'm a Sidney Poitier fan...Gotta Love Him. If any of you get the chance please rent some of these vintage films you will not be disappointed in any of them. They are true treasures and eventhough most of the supporting actors/actresses or no longer with us...this was truly an era of great film noir. Enjoy!

The dialogue is dated and so is the reaction to son's marriage proposal to Ivy, but I enjoyed this movie. Sidney and Abbey make acting look like art. Abbey Lincoln exuded elegance, common sense and good sense of humor. I like the Austin family too. They seemed to care about their housekeeper and seemed ahead of their time in terms of race and class. They meant well even when they said wrong to Ivy and didn't seem to realize she wanted a better life for herself. Well worth watching.
