One of the greats.  Did all kinds of films. 
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

To Sir With Love was my favorite . Followed by Guess who’s Coming to Dinner.
Old Spice Moisturize with Shea Butter Body Wash is a great product

If you'd have asked me on Monday, I'd have guessed he died in the early 00s.

Hadn’t done a film since 1997, though he did some other work

Which was when he was appointed the Bahamian Ambassador to Japan, which is pretty awesome.  I think he did that for the better part of a decade.

He has one of the all time awesome sounding names.  Sounds like a character created for a Victorian era novel.

I'd add

Lilies of the Field and
 In the Heat of the Night (they call me Mr Tibbs)
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

To Sir With Love was the first movie I remember seeing in the theater. Had a big impact on my life.
