1967
Rating:
Not Available

In The Heat Of The Night is the highly acclaimed, racially charged 1967 mystery crime film, directed by the celebrated Norman Jewison (Moonstruck, The Hurricane, Fiddler on the Roof). Rod Steiger stars as town sheriff Bill Gillespie who finds himself stuck with a murder he's ill-equipped to solve and Sidney Poitier plays the deft Philadelphia homicide detective Virgil Tibbs whose skin color ' as well as being a suspect - would deny him any effectivity in attempting to work this case on his own. The two start up rubbing each other the wrong way practically from the film's outset. Yet each somehow, in the process of investigation and discovery, reveals his own humanity to the other. By the time the investigation has found its unexpected reward in the killer of the industrialist, Gillespie and Tibbs aren't quite friends ... but they are a long way from the loggerheads they started out at.
