In the Heat of the Night

Posted by lori . 3 Comments

Imagine how groundbreaking this movie was in 1967.  It’s about a Philadelphia detective who ends up assisting the sheriff of a small, racist town in Mississippi with a murder investigation.  Do you recognize the quote, “They call me Mr. Tibbs!” but don’t know where it comes from?  Now you know.  In the Heat of the Night won the 1967 Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Film Editing, Best Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay.
