In the Heat of the Night is a very popular movie from 1967, one of the top movies in Drama genre. First of all, I need to say that In the Heat of the Night is not like the other Drama movies made according to the usual scheme. In the Heat of the Night is kind of surprise of 1967, the rest of movies made in United States wasn't as successful as this one. I couldn't forget about the great cast, Warren Oates and Sidney Poitier really did their work perfectly. The man who directed In the Heat of the Night is Norman Jewison.
