In the Heat of the Night (1967)
27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]
POSTER CONDITION & GRADING
Good to Very Good, linen backed. Prior to linen backing there was some surface paper loss at the crossfolds and some scuffs and stains. The poster was very well backed with minor restoration to the defects described and now displays nicely!
POSTER TAGLINE & DESCRIPTION
Poster Artist: Paul Crifo. "They got a murder on their hands. They don't know what to do with it."; "They're going to pin something on that smart cop from Philadelphia…Maybe a medal…Maybe a murder." Great 1960s poster art on this one-sheet for Norman Jewison's enduring classic. The racial politics may seem a bit dated to some, but no one has ever denied the power of the acting (Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger are both superb, with memorable supporting performances from Warren Oates and Lee Grant) or the absorbing thriller plot that frames the action.
