Item Description: United Artists, Beverly Hills, CA, 1967. Original Pressbook for the 1967 film. Sidney Poitier is a Philadelphia police detective recruited to help solve a murder in a small, bigoted Mississippi town when he is accidentally implicated in the crime while passing through. The film dealt skillfully with the topic of race relations in the South during the Civil Rights movement, and included a controversial scene in which a white actor, Larry Gates, slaps Poitier in the face, at which point Poitier slaps him right back. It was said you could determine the racial makeup of a theater by their verbal reaction to the scene: cheers for a predominantly black audience, or whispers for a predominantly white one.Though set in the fictional town of Sparta, Mississippi, Poitier refused to travel below the Mason-Dixon Line, so the film was shot largely in Illinois. Quincy Jones composed the soundtrack for the film. Winner of five Academy Awards including Best Picture, and nominated for two others. 12 pages, saddle stitched, 13.25 x 18 inches. Near Fine, creased. National Film Registry. Bookseller Inventory # 134928
