Price Drop Alert

This black history DVD is a classic whodunnit built on a framework of 1960s race relations in the rural South.

The stoic Sidney Poitier stars in his most famous role as Virgil Tibbs, a Philadelphia police detective who becomes embroiled in a murder investigation in Sparta, Miss. The town’s hard-nosed police chief, Bill Gillespie (Rod Steiger), resents his new partner and makes no effort to conceal his racist disapproval of Tibbs. The tension between the two lead characters, and the transformation of Chief Gillespie in the course of events, serves as a proxy for those turbulent times when the Civil Rights movement was taking hold in the South.

Part murder mystery and part social commentary, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT has become a true classic film. It spawned two sequels as well as a successful television series. Own this black history DVD and cherish it as you watch it again and again. Poitier’s performance will go down in history as one of the finest by any actor of any time.

  • Winner of five Academy Awards including: Best Picture, Best Actor (Steiger), Film Editing, Best Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay
  • Winner of three Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture, Best Actor (Steiger) and Best Screenplay
  • Running time: 109 minutes
  • English and Spanish subtitles
  • A true classic and must-own film. Makes an excellent black history gift.
