Starring Academy AwardÂ(r) winners* Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger and Lee Grant, this provocative mystery thriller won** five 1967 OscarsÂ(r), including Best Picture. Highlighted by an evocative score from OscarÂ(r)-winning*** composer Quincy Jones, In The Heat Of The Night is a "powerful film" (The New York Times) that delivers the "highest level of exciting entertainment" (New York Daily News)! While traveling in the Deep South, Virgil Tibbs, a black Philadelphia homicide detective, becomes unwittingly embroiled in the murder investigationof a prominent businessman when he is first accused of the crimeand 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. *Poitier: Actor, Lilies of the Field (1963); Steiger: Actor, In the Heat of the Night (1967); Grant: Supporting Actress, Shampoo (1975) **Actor (Steiger), Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Sound ***1994: Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award

Review of the Blu-ray disc - It provides the best viewing of "In the Heat of the Night" yet! I have the VHS tape and earlier DVD discs and the Blu-ray is nearly perfect. The colors and the sound have never appeared or sounded better. It is also the best wide screen version I have ever seen including the original screenings in Atlanta in 1967. Extras for films that are this old (47 years!) are not always available or of very good quality. The ones included here are not new (I do not think) but they have not (to my knowledge) been available before. All are enjoyable.
The camera work, acting and direction is exceptional. Of coarse Trump people will most likely hate it because it depicts the South accurately as it was in the 1960s.
