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.

Good script and direction, with an interesting motif of Tibbs constantly trying to get out of the town at the train station. As a mystery, it's fairly straightforward. As a portrayal of the times, it's a bit simplistic, although the townspeople have more complexity than they would in modern, ham-handed treatments. But as a character study, it's excellent and involving. Poitier is very good as his normal intense, barely restrained self, and Steiger's amazing performance is even better.

The story is really about two different worlds learning to respect each other, rather than solving a murder. I wish "They Call Me Mr. Tibbs!" had followed him back to Philly because it sounds like there's more of a story there that we want to hear.
