It's customary to refer to this film as dated, but I suspect aspects of it might have been far fetched, perhaps even laughable, back in 1967. Steiger won an academy award for his performance as a brash and racist cop, but he is a caricature that's hard to take seriously, even if he is not bad per se. Poitier is solid but one note. None of the actors do their best work, but they are effective as an ensemble, and it builds a certain amount of power, although it never lands any truly fatal blows.

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.
