Tag Archives: Sidney Poitier wants your money

And he was so polite when he came to dinner!

Sidney Poitier demands that all CEO’s pay be capped at $500,000. That’s what my grandfather John Gilbert earned per year from MGM but he was being paid that sum in the late 1920s. I haven’t kept up with Hollywood lately but it’s my understanding that Mr. Portier earned far more than that for his films. Then again, he isn’t a CEO, so perhaps that explains his call for wage controls in this limited instance.
