Sidney Poitier, stars as Detective Virgil Tibbs, battles another puzzling murder in San Francisco in this exciting sequel to In The Heat of the Night featuring compelling performances from Martin Landau and Barbara McNair and music by Quincy Jones.
When a prostitute is murdered in San Francisco’s ritzy Nob Hill district, an anonymous tip implicates the Reverend Logan Sharpe (Landau). Lt. Virgil Tibbs, who has known Sharpe for many years, asks to be assigned to the case in hopes of clearing his friend’s name. So begins Tibbs’ journey through a twisted maze of baffling evidence, frantic chases and deadly gunfire. Before long, Tibbs finds himself bitterly torn between his duty as a cop and his loyalty to a friend. (1970)
