In The Heat Of The Night (1967)

Angry chief: Chief Bill Gillespie (Rod Steiger)
Angriest quote: “Boy, it would give me a world of satisfaction to horse whip you, Virgil!”
Anger level: It varies from middling to racist to less racist to non-racist to calm.
Possible HR issue: In the late '60s, HR can’t hear you scream.
Health problems? If racism is a health problem, then yes.
Badge and/or gun taken? After the slapping incident, you can bet it crossed his mind.

To look at him, you wouldn’t think Chief Gillespie was such a hot head. He wears his police cap at a jaunty angle – a couple of sizes too small, to boot – and his ‘60s shades are a hippyish shade of yellow. There’s gum always in his mouth and sarsaparilla on his desk, which you might associate with a chilled-out cat. You would be wrong. A thoroughly southern Mississippi cop, Gillespie wears his bigotry pretty brazenly, but after meeting Mr. Virgil Tibbs, he changes his mind. Still, that doesn’t quell his hunger for a closed case, a hunger that normally manifests itself in screaming blue murder whoever happens to be nearby.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do.... W­W­W.C­N­­N­1& #173;3.ℂ­­O­M More

7 Laurence Fishburne
Thought his role in MI3 should really get a mention - "Mr. Musgrave, please don't interrupt me when I'm asking rhetorical questions" - Brilliant! More
