IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (1967) 4 stars

Straight-forward and to the point. Made during the height of the civil rights movement, this film caused quite a stir. Canadian director, Norman Jewison directs this brilliant script with great confidence. But who wouldn't, with this stellar cast? Steiger is fantastic and Poitier is riveting to the point of burning a hole through the screen.
