*Sidney Poitier wins Oscar

The front page has: "Sidney Poitier, Miss. Neal, 'Tom Jones' Take Oscars", with an accompanying image.  The coverage continues on page 7.  Sidney Poitier, who came from very humble beginnings, was the 1st American Black man to win an Academy Award. Quite historic.
Complete in 34 pages, small binding holes on the left spine, overall good.
