Summary
One of the first studio films to deal with interracial romance (or even the possibility of it). Sidney Poitier plays Gordon, a compassionate stranger who befriends a blind white girl named Selina (Elizabeth Hartman). Selina, the next thing to a shut-in, can only judge people by their voices, and Gordon's is unusually patient & kind. She doesn't know that the man helping her learn to dial a pay phone or find the restroom is black. Troubles ensue when Selina's abusive mother (Shelley Winters in her second Oscar-winning performance) happens upon the pair during one of their park rendezvous
