Starring Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger, Warren Oates and Lee Grant, this provocative mystery thriller from director Norman Jewison (The Cincinnati Kid, The Thomas Crown Affair) won five 1967 Oscars including Best Picture. Featuring an evocative score from Quincy Jones, In The Heat Of The Night is a powerful film that delivers intelligent, thoughtful entertainment.

While travelling in the deep South, Virgil Tibbs (Poitier), 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, especially 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.
