This movie was just freakin great. It’s age shows and I like that. It works for a movie like this. I wasn’t alive when it came out, but I’m sure it was something to see in the 60s. The leads are extremely good and the supporting cast is as well, and I thought the story was really original and surprising, even if it’s culprit is a little obvious. Some of the scenes are really well shot and the score is really good as well. Entertaining and really well-made.

I'm not 100% into movies like this (although it being made in 1967 gives it some points) where an examination of racism means "white person treats POC like a human" and then the POC character has to always concede that they have biases that are of equal footing when it ain't even close. Great performances tho.

şaşırtıcı biçimde iyi yaşlanmış film. dedektiflik hikayesi kurulan bağlantılardaki atlamalar ve diğer temassızlıklar sebebiyle pek tatmin edici olmasa da iki karakterin hikayesi olarak görünce bir şekilde ona derinlik katar olmuş. sıkı bir polis draması.

Lite speciellt att se den utomhus när ett rejält regnväder gör att jag - och de flesta andra - missar de första 20-25 minuterna... Välgjord om än ibland något övertydlig film med intressanta poänger. Rod Steiger gör ett fint porträtt av polischefen.

A murder mystery in the deep south led by an out of town black police detective is the perfect setting for some fantastic character work from both Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. The discovery of who done it, is ultimately unimportant to the real discovery the two main characters do about themselves and each other trying to successfully navigate the racial tension prevalent throughout the film.

While the underlying detective story isn't wholly satisfying, the rest of the film has much to commend it. The character work from Poitier and Steiger is excellent, and the film itself is very well put together; direction, editing, sound all first-class. Tense, atmospheric and challenging, and well worth seeing.

Clearly the mystery takes a back seat to the obvious social messages and powerhouse acting from both leads. Considering this came out when there was active, open violence towards blacks trying to vote etc., it must have been something to see.

Manages to capture both the obvious as well as the subtle aspects of racism. Great acting all around. Sidney Poitier is incredibly charismatic and magnetic and Rod Steiger shows the progression of his character, a good person waking from the racism he was conditioned to believe.

The main investigation story takes a back seat in this Southern murder mystery, with the film's focus instead lying firmly on the begrudging relationship between a white police chief and a black detective. The racism theme is handled in an impressively thought-provoking manner, and the fantastic direction, script and pacing means there's never a dull moment. Steiger and Poitier are exceptional in their respective roles.
