A scathing attack on small-town racial bigotry wrapped in a gripping crime narrative, Norman Jewison’s Best Picture Oscar winner stars Sidney Poitier in a career-defining role as Philadelphia detective Virgil Tibbs. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Tibbs is drawn into a murder investigation in the fictional Mississippi town of Sparta. Poitier's performance in this still-vital film is a powerful reminder of how he forever changed the way African Americans are represented on screen.
