Sidney Poitier plays Homer Smith, an aimless ex-GI who takes a temporary handyman job at a Southwestern farm maintained by five German nuns. It is the cherished dream of the Mother Superior (Lilia Skala) to build a chapel. She is convinced that the personable Homer has been sent from Above to help her realise her dream. He protests loudly and rudely, but she will not be dissuaded. Poitier’s role in this film won him an Oscar for Best Actor, the first time that award was given to a Black actor.
