Drayton played by (Spencer Tracy) in Guess Whose Coming to Dinner portrays the epitome of ‘object relations’ within a ‘racial project’ film. His character exists as an object relation. The construction of the to characters within the structure of the story. Though the film is nominally about racial tolerance, the main theme that really came across as that of the crisis in white patriarchy. Drayton is the target of the film’s comedy, but at the same time the movie ends ith reaffirming tone of white isdom and tolerance towards a bi-racial marriage. Thus, the relationship is only possible if Drayton gives the to love birds his seal of approval, but in the end, Drayton actually explains that the only reason he’s giving his blessing is because of a true found love; not because its the noble, white patriarch thing to do. Sidney Poitier’s character was looked at as a ‘Supertom’ because his character followed all the traits of that of a Supertom; which is a stereotype coined from the Edwin Porter novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The novel as a character study on socially acceptable negroes that have positive character traits in a non-offensive and submissive manner. In the case of Guess Whose Coming to Dinner, Dr. Prentice (Sidney Poitier)s character as created as an object to satisfy the needs of the white ideologies . His character as tailored to be super-accomplished and supremely confident to enter the white world as an equal, yet simultaneously humble and non-threatening. The basis of this could have been to project how the white characters perceived themselves and was used as a model to create some sort of pseudo equality, but in actuality the Dr. Prentice character as used as a more important device which as to reveal the fact that a person skin color should not subject that person to be of less equal stature. The overall theme of the film was indeed that love is the final answer but it wasn’t actually concrete until the white man approved it. Thats the irony.
