||one of the great classics|
In the Heat of the Night film this movie could have been filmed today and touched many nerves around the world in the politically correct millenium this movie portrays a far too standard myopic view of the day everyone should see this movie.

||The story and Poiter are Phenomenal|
In the Heat of the Night review Loaded with racism, ignorance, mystery, injustice and a REAL "feel good" ending, this movie is sure to go down in history as an honest attempt at showing prejudice and hopefully an honorable attempt at bringing change. In the Heat of the Night DVD for sale Poiter was gallant, humble, intelligent and gentle without being subservient... One of his greatest roles. Steiger was amazing and powerful.... sure to be his best role also.

||My Favoirite From Poiter!|
In the Heat of the Night movie Excellent performances by both Poiter and Steiger. I was only 3 or 4 years old when this movie was released and I think it is a collectors item. Music also scored by Quincy Jones.

||Rod Steiger is amazing!|
In the Heat of the Night video Sidney Poitier is also wonderful; however the Best Actor award did go to Steiger who's part was far more of a stretch than was Poitiers'. In the Heat of the Night film Rod Steiger as in 'The Pawnbroker & Happy Birthday Wanda June' really does carry this very well directed film. ONE QUESTION if anyone can answer; it seems to me that R&B legend Joe Simon has a small uncredited role in this film. When Poitier arrives and has no lodgings is it not Joe Simon who takes his suitcase and provide accomodations?
