Starring Academy Award winners Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger and Lee Grant, this provocative mystery thriller won five 1967 Oscars including Best Picture. Highlighted by an evocative score from Oscars-winning composers Quincy Jones, In The Heat Of The Night is a powerful film that delivers the highest level of exciting entertainment!
While travelling in the deep south, Virgil Tibbs, a black Philadelphia homicide detective, becomes unwittingly embroiled in the murder investigation of a prominent businessman when he is first accused of the crime - and then asked to solve it! Finding the killer proves to be difficult, however, specially when his efforts are constantly thwarted by the bigoted town Sheriff (Steiger). But neither man can solve this case alone. Putting aside their differences and prejudices, they join forces in a desperate race against time to discover the shocking truth.

A very good movie, but certainly a product of its time. Hard hitting in the 60's but tame by today's standards, its blatant disregard for racial equality and persistent racial slurs by tobacco chewing hillbilly's did raise a chuckle at times. Saying that, Poitier and Steiger were immense and the story will have you guessing until the end.

A great pairing of Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. Poitier is a cop from the city who aids Steiger in a murder investigation. At first they don't get along because of racial tension, but after a while begin to admire and respect one another. A great catalogue release from MGM, completely restored for blu-ray. Stunning video quality.
