Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A gripping, socially conscious murder mystery reflecting the turbulent times during which it was made, They Call Me Mister Tibbs! finds Sidney Poitier revisiting his tough-cop character from the Oscar-winning In the Heat of the Night. This 1970 sequel relocates Philadelphia police detective Virgil Tibbs to San Francisco, where an activist clergyman played by Martin Landau campaigning for local government reform is implicated in the murder of a prostitute. Tibbs, a close friend of the preacher, investigates the case in his usual no-nonsense manner but runs into unexpected opposition from corrupt officials. As in this film's illustrious predecessor, Virgil confronts deeply ingrained, systemic racism -- but unlike Heat of the Night, it unfolds in a contemporary urban setting where tensions gain complexity and power brokers play for high stakes. Veteran director Gordon Douglas In Like Flint deftly interprets a complicated script that switches back and forth between the murder investigation and Virgil's domestic travails. The MGM DVD benefits from a newly mastered print and is accompanied by the film's original trailer.
