PENGUIN CLASSICS PRESENTS
IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT
introduced by Wesley Morris

7:30

Monday, December 21

(1967, Norman Jewison) A mysterious murder, and gum-chomping Mississippi sheriff Rod Steiger (Oscar, Best Actor, and 263 packs of gum) has got the just the right prime suspect, that… black man who just got off the train – wait a minute, he’s really Philly police detective Sidney Poitier?! Among the highlights, Poitier’s return slap to Larry Gates, Steiger’s grab-fap-grab to a would be Poitier hunter, and his wondering “You just like us.” Also Oscars for Best Picture, adapted screenplay, sound and editing. A new 50th anniversary edition of John Ball’s original 1965 is now out from Penguin Classics (available at our concession today). DCP.
