They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Further adventures of Lieutenant Virgil Tibbs, the black cop who took on an entire Southern town in In the Heat of the Night. Poitier plays the role again, but this time his beat is San Francisco, the script studiously avoids racial issues, and the film goes the way of most sequels. Poitier duly solves his murder mystery and survives some domestic problems, but neither he nor director Gordon Douglas can turn this into anything more than a routine thriller.
