In The Heat Of The Night

Like the intro of my copy noted, the character has too much of a "magic Negro" (Sidney Poiter was perfect) feel especially compared to a bunch of local rednecks (most welcoming is someone from the North and an Italian). A scene with a local racist in the movie, which was more melodramatic and changes some details, is not in the book. Good overall.
