Dir. James Wong Howe. 1954, 82 mins. Archival 16mm print courtesy of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. With Dane Clark, Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, Patricia Breslin, and the Harlem Globetrotters. Wong Howe’s first directorial feature is a rousing, scrappy production that dramatizes the formation of the beloved basketball entertainment troupe the Harlem Globetrotters. Shot in New York, with actual Globetrotters game-play captured at Madison Square Garden, the film features a young Ruby Dee and, in one of his earliest roles, Sidney Poitier as charismatic center Inman Jackson.
