Something of Value (1957)-Rock Hudson and Sidney Poitier in heartbreaking performances

On TCM 11/17/16- Something of Value (1957) written/directed by Richard Brooks is a powerful well-acted film about how the close since childhood friendship between Rock Hudson and Sidney Poitier is challenged in revolution torn Kenya. Great supporting cast with the beautiful Dana Wynter, screen great Wendy Hiller, Ivan Dixon, and the underrated Juano Hernandez with Michael Pate convincing as a hateful farmer.  The perfect soundtrack by Miklos Rozsa intensifies the love, friendship and tragic conflict and adds even more dramatic impact.
