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.

Sidney Poitier at his best

Total :


I bought this DVD expecting it to be a film about a black detective in South America, and I was not disappointed, it fulfilled my expectations, as the title of the film, embedded digitally on to the plastic disc was, and will ever remain to be "In the Heat of the Night, which, unsurprisingley, is about a young black detective investigating a murder in the deep south where he is referred to by the co-star (Rod Steiger) as "boy" Steiger`s character is a racist and cannot get round the fact thar this "boy" earns more money than he does. It`s a classic film about prejudices. But, as this DVD was purchased as a present for my wife, I have not watched it yet..I`m only guessing that it`s about a black detective investigating a murder in the deep south where racial prjudices run high..I could be wrong ,but the film is not a new one and I have seen it before so I will be surprised if it isn`t about a black detective investigating a murder in the deep south of America
