LILIES OF THE FIELD -POITIER AS HOMER WON AN OSCAR ,he playsa itinerant man wandering the midwest who comes to help 5 immigrant polish nuns and this becomes a delightful comic drama with serious overtones about the relationship between man ,religion ,individual and community .ralph nelson has made a buoyant ,spiritual and delightful classic both meaningful and entertaining .

IN THE HEAT OF NIGHT -this won 5 oscars and is a noir thriller where poitier plays a forensic homicide detective ,mr .tibbs to rod steigers racist small town sheriff,as together they investigate a murder to find the truth .
it is a racial satire and a mystery thriller showing a typical southern milieu in sixties america .

THEY CALL ME MR.TIBBS-this is the sequel to inthe heat of night where poitier as a detective solves a murder mystery in san francisco .
matin landau co -stars in a baffling mystery which winds like a rat maze and frienships are put to test as the 2 friends playing the leads become suspicious of each other .

ORGANIZATION -a drug trafficking thriller where mr.tibbs -sidney poitier fights a drug syndicate in a brilliant action movie co-starring raul julia .

the 4 discs have lilies of field as the best feature without any extras -but the tibbs TRILOGY has the originaltheatrical trailer .

i like the 4 movies as they show poitier across 20 years of his prime time career in diverse roles with very talented co stars in all 4 movies .

I love this collection! I saw In the Heat of the night when I was young and it made a big impact on me. It highlighted the prejudice by the white population toward the black population in American, particularly in the Southern states where the Klu Klux Clan thrived on persecuting any one of who was not white.. I would
recommend this collection to everyone as it also shows Sidney Poitier' diversity as an actor.

This
particularly in the southern states, where the Ku klux Klan thrived. It was a vehicle to show the inequality that there was at the time. Sidney Poitier was a black detective who was highly qualified and was sent to unravel the truth behind a number of racially led murders. This film is powerful and moving and reflects the

'In The Heat Of The Night' and 'Lilies Of The Field' oozes inspiration.
Whether you're an artisan collector of great films, or studying 'the arts' - (i.e - the art of great acting, or just a Sidney Poitier fan, you won't be disappointed when you buy this set of films.

The Sidney Poitier 'Collection' contains 4 DVD discs, 3 of which are related - not prequels or sequels - the 4th film is a film that stands alone - why it was included in this collection - who knows - but, I can only assume that it was included in this 'Collection' of films as the 4th film, because after watching 3 movies that contain the criminal elements to life, it's nice to sit back, relax, warm your heart - without the sexual element - and be reminded of the finer, funnier and simple things in life.

Lilies Of The Field is a 'nice' Black & White movie, with superb acting from Sidney Poitier. It is not part of the 'Mr Tibbs' 'cops and robbers' season of films.

Four Great Films at an 'Ideal' Price.

Thank You!

In the Heat of the Night,a classic oscar winner with Sidney Poitier as an out of town "big time cop" and Rod Steiger as a biggotted towns sheriff plus the two sequels,then the Oscar winning for best ACTOR in Lillies Of the Field where Poitier plays a handyman who ends up helping poor nuns build a church,simple story,beautiful performance.An all round very worthwhile box set to have for yer collection.

The Lilies In The Field is a great & warm film, showing how people can grow and learn from each other. Stunning acting by both Pottier and the other members of the cast. A great deal of humor, as well as the emotional highs and lows.

In The Heat Of The Night is a film which shows us some great truths about humanity and in particularly does not hold back when it comes to showing discrimination on all sides. Pottier as the skilled homicide detective mistaken for a murderer is excellent and his relationship with the Sheriff is perfect. Much recommended.

In the Heat The Night Poitier delivers one of the best cinematic performances ever.There is nothing more pleasant than relaxing with a classic Poitier after a hard week at work. This set will prove to be a good buy, you will find watching all four films again and again.

Firstly thanks to the seller who got this to me at a great price with swift P&P and in perfect condition. The funny thing is I thought never really liked Sidney Poitier. I can vaguely remember seeing one or two of his film when I was a child back in the days of BW television. After watching all 4 films I have to say I really enjoyed them and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering buying this set. We must remember that as one gets older what one believes one like does or dislikes, can and will often change.

Always been a fan of Poitier, and it's great to have all the Mr Tibbs films together. I had never seen Lillies of the Field so that was a bonus. Very quick delivery.

Purchased on behalf of my mother who lives abroad. She had damaged her copy of one of these films and asked me to replace it. Amazon had it in this collection and priced very favourably. Mum jumped at the chance of the additional three films. She has watched them all now and they are greatly enjoyed by her, she will watch them many times more.
