SAN FRANCISCO - Let's get
this straight. Sidney Poitier is 63-
years-old. And 10 years after saying
finis to a remarkable acting career
that included eight Oscar nomina-
tions and a win for 1963's Lilies of
the Field, he returns to the screen in
Shoot to Kill (now playing in the-
The action-adventure film, which
has Poitier playing an FBI agent
chasing a cold-blooded killer through
the mountains of the Pacific North-
west, is as violent as it sounds.
Whenever Screenwriter Daniel
Petrie, Jr., is not punctuating the
action scenes with blown-out eye-
sockets, he is having Poitier battle
the forces of natures. This means
jumping cars. Climbing mountains.
Pulling ropes. And fighting off
Director Roger Spottiswoode
(Under Fire), known for realism in
his films, is not big on using stunt
"I'm in good shape," Poitier as-
sures a table of reporters at a press
junket for his new film. And he is.
Despite sporting a faded brown, beat-
up cardigan sweater that hints of
September, his firm, rigid body still
cries of springtime. What's more,
the effect does not come from mir-
rors; Poitier climbs every mountain,
he pulls every rope, he jumps every
car that Spottiswoode asks him to.
And the actor does all of this with
the convincing authority of a man
half his age.
Poitier doesn't need a rocking
chair; he needs a jug of Gatorade.
"It was a very physical piece of
work," he says of the movie. "For
example, one interesting and danger-
ous sequence..." He is talking about
the scene with him and co-star Tom
Berenger confronting a bear. The
scene was simple enough - all
Poitier had to do was run by the
camera and a trainer would pull a
"trip wire" to stop the bear - but
Poitier encountered a minor prob-
"In the first take, I fell before I
got to the wire. And I fell face for-
ward. I was panicked, I must tell
you. And by the time I turn around
and look up, there he is. Fortu-
nately, a trainer was there with a
bucket of meat. Lucky for me be-
cause there was a lot of meat on the
ground," he jokes.
His soft voice, carefully and
painstakingly enunciating every syl-
lable of every word, forces you to
lean forward to be able to hear him.
But that's okay because you're al-
sharpened his tennis and golf games.
Poitier quit acting in 1977 be-
cause he had felt he did everything in
the field that there was to do. "I
didn't have that problem of having
to try to prove anything during my
career," he says. "People respected
my work enough. Therefore, at the
end of 40 films or so, I considered
myself so lucky and so fortunate that
it appeared to me to be piggish to
want anymore. I was given more
than my share. There was nothing
left undone. So to be away from it
was a natural thing."
Money, says Poitier, was not a
major issue in the decision. "I live a
very frugal life. My expenditures are
quite reasonable. I have no yachts, I
have no private planes. All I have is
a tennis racquet, some golf clubs.
My older children are gone and there
is enough money to live a good life.
I don't need to lead the Hollywood
life. All I need is to live comfort-
ably. And I have that.
"I came back partly because I
liked the script and partly because I
feel an obligation to Columbia Pic-
tures," Poitier says. Columbia Pic-
tures has financed many of Poitier's
directoral efforts, including 1980's
highly successful Stir Crazy.
Columbia offered him the lead role
of Shoot to Kill, and even though
the script bounced over to Disney's
Poitier still did the film.
Now that the film is done, Poitier
can relax a little. He has earned a
rest. And in talking to him, you un-
derstand why he took a 10=year
vacation. After climbing mountains
all his life - whether it be on
screen or off screen - Poitier can
finally stop and enjoy the view.
"There isn't a favorite," Poitier
says when asked to look back on his
film career and pick a favorite.
"There are several that I like and I
like a lot. What I thought was good
was To Sir With Love, In the Heat
of the Night, Lilies in the Field and
The Defiant Ones. Don't ask me to
Let's get this straight. Sidney
Poitier is 63-years-old. And even
though the bulk of his days and his
work are behind him, this is not an
eulogy. Poitier is back. And later
this year, he will star with River
Phoenix (Stand by Me) in Little
Nikita. Climbing more mountains?
Maybe. But only because he wants
"Acting is very much unlike
life," Poitier reflects. "It is a game.
And I liked playing in that game.
But I was never a judge of how I
played in the game. I listened to
what (the critics and movie-goers)
said and what I heard was good.
People liked what I did. That was
After a 10 year break, Sidney Poitier is back in the newly re-
leased film 'Shoot to Kill.' When asked what he has been doing
for the past decade, Poitier says, "I have been improving myself.
I have been extending myself. I have been broadening ..."
ready leaning forward from the very
presence of the man. And at the
same time you are asking why he
left the screen, you are wondering
what has brought him back. He
waxes philosophical over both ques-
When asked what he has been
doing for the past decade, Poitier
says, "I have been improving my-
self. I have been extending myself. I
have been broadening ... you know,
they call them the productive years."
Among other things he has written
an autobiography called This Life,
directed some feature films, and has
