In the Heat of the Night

A film by Norman Jewison

The Southern swelter underscores the tension between black city detective Sidney Poitier and the Mississippi town where he’s stuck, first as a suspect and then as an unlikely detective in a murder investigation. Rod Steiger won an Oscar for Best Actor playing the white local sheriff that comes to an uneasy alliance with Poitier.
