SFI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of this landmark film and the 90th birthday of its star, Sidney Poitier. Poitier is devastatingly cool and charismatic as Philadelphia homicide detective Virgil Tibbs in this multi-Oscar-winning Deep South murder mystery. Tibbs is teamed with a racist redneck sheriff (Rod Steiger) to help with the investigation, and the pair make for a riveting partnership in a film that’s equally entertaining, atmospheric and insightful about the era’s desperately strained race relations. Directed by Norman Jewison. (1967, 110 min.)
