In the Heat of the Night

This 1967 classic is remembered mostly as an '80s cop show starring Carroll O'Conner. The original, however, is a still-potent racial drama about a dignified black detective from Philadelphia (Sidney Poitier) asked to investigate a murder in a racist southern town. His thorny friendship with the local police chief (played by Rod Steiger) forms the backbone of this Academy Award-winning drama. 109 minutes
