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!

Putting aside their differences and prejudices, they join forces in a desperate race against time to discover the shocking truth.

In The Heat of the Night

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.

One of the Greats

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.
