On Jan. 20, the film industry lost a giant with the passing of Canadian-born director Norman Jewison at the age of 97. Over a four-decade period, Jewison directed 24 films that received 41 Academy Award nominations (including five Best Picture nominations) and won 12 Oscars. He is best known for his Best Picture winner “In The Heat of The Night” (1967), featuring Rod Steiger as a small-town Mississippi police chief forced to partner with a black Philadelphia homicide detective, portrayed by Sidney Poitier, to solve the death of a northern businessman about to invest millions in the community. Steiger’s performance won a Best Actor Oscar. The racial drama was groundbreaking and controversial at the time of its release, including a scene of Poitier slapping the town’s white patriarch, a scene excised in prints shown in southern states.
