In the Heat of the Night

In the Heat of the Night

(Edit) 05/12/2018

This 1967 film starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger is more than a depiction of racial bigots in the deep south. A murder has been committed and a black detective from the North who is passing through is automatically suspected. .To the annoyance of the local police chief (Rod Steiger) The boss of the black detective whose name is Tibbs, suggests that he stays and helps solve the murder. The Chief is clueless as this is the first murder on his patch, but although he doesn't like the fact that Tibbs is black, he has to admit that he has expertise that the chief doesn't. In this racially charged atmosphere a relationship of respect and even friendship develops between the two men. An excellent film.
