Directed by Daniel Petrie | 1961

With Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeil, Ruby Dee

A moving tale of a black family’s financial struggles on Chicago’s South Side, this film adapts Lorraine Hansberry’s masterpiece, which was the first play by a black female writer ever to be produced on Broadway. The powerhouse ensemble cast includes Sidney Poitier as a young chauffeur who desperately wants to get ahead in the world and Ruby Dee as his wife who struggles to make ends meet for the family.
