In this landmark Oscar-winning trailblazer, Sidney Poitier is Virgil Tibbs, a Philadelphia cop stuck in the intolerant South and forced to partner with racist sheriff Rod Steiger on a murder investigation. A moody, gripping, still-relevant melodrama, featuring Lee Grant and Warren Oates, editing by Hal Ashby, a Quincy Jones score, and Haskell Wexler behind the camera.
