In Response To: Remember Beah Richards? Sounder? ()
I too LOVE her! Awesome Actress just simply amazing. Her role in Hurry Sundown is one of my favorites. Some of the scenes in it are really heart breakingly memorable.
However I'm hoping that the masses will probably more readily remember her as the mother of Sidney Poitier in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?
In it she has a scene she plays with the father of her son's white fiance played by Spencer Tracy. Anyone will agree that very few people have ever stole a scene from Spencer Tracy but Beah manages it quite well in a monologue about the love her son has for this man's daughter.
