Overview
Sidney Poitier stars in Lilies of the Field (1963) in the role that made history when he won the first Academy Award® (for Best Actor) bestowed upon an African American male. He plays an itinerant handyman who helps a group of immigrant nuns build a chapel, firmly cementing their belief that he's been sent to them courtesy of the will of God. Produced and directed by Ralph Nelson, co-starring Lilia Skala, and featuring a lovely Americana-flavored score by Jerry Goldsmith.
