In the Heat of the Night

Does anyone remember this movie? I know it was shot in my neck of the woods, in Chester and Freeburg, and the GM&O depot in Sparta, Illinois.
Also, during one of the chase scenes their driving under a viaduct and a train led by two MoPac Geeps appears. (i think that was on the then-MP now UP line through Sparta) Good movie.

Sure do. Loved the scene at the end of the GM&O passenger train pulling out of town.

Potier and Steiger were great, too.
