Sidney Poitier plays a black police detective, Virgil Tibbs, who unexpectedly finds himself investigating the murder of a wealthy white industrialist in the small town of Sparta, Mississippi - and who unearths some tawdry small-town secrets. One of Poitier's best-known roles, this tense mystery doubles as a look back at race relations in the Old South, in which even the crustiest townspeople are compelled to respect Tibbs for his tenacity and skill. This film won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Rod Steiger, Poitier's co-star.
