They Call Me Mr. Tibbs, the sequel to In the Heat of the Night, is a crime drama directed by Gordon Douglas. The film opens with the murder of Joy Sturges (Linda Towne), a prostitute working in the San Francisco area. Lieutenant Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) begins investigating the case after his friend, Reverend Logan Sharpe (Martin Landau), is named as a suspect in the killing of the young woman. Sharpe went to see Joy just before her death to provide counseling, and his connection with her places him under suspicion. In addition to the Reverend, there are three additional suspects: Rice Weedon (Anthony Zerbe), the landlord of the building where the body was found, Woody Garfield (Edward Asner), a real estate agent who begins acting erratically after the murder, and Mealie Williamson (Juano Hernandez), the handyman who found Linda's body. With his personal connection to the case weighing heavily on his mind, Tibbs must find the killer before his friend's reputation and career are ruined.
