* Sidney Poitier wins Best Actor Oscar
*1st African American male to win an Academy Award
The top of the front page has a three column heading: "Sidney Poitier, Miss. Neal, 'Tom Jones' Take Oscars" with subhead and photo. (see) Sidney Poitier, who came from very humble beginnings, was the 1st African American man to win an Academy Award. Quite historic.
Complete in 34 pages, light toning at the margins, generally very nice.
