In January, Sidney Poitier, legend of the silver screen, passed away at age 94. During this week’s episode, we pay homage with music from some of his most memorable movie moments. From his Oscar-winning turn in 1963’s Lilies of the Field, his turn as ‘Mister Tibbs’ for In The Heat of the Night, and his Tahiti-loving charm in 1992’s Sneakers.
