The Organization from 1971 is a crime drama film starring Sidney Poitier, Barbara McNair, and Gerald S. O'Loughlin. It revolves around a group of criminals who have formed a highly efficient and sophisticated organization. The organization is so effective that even the police are having a hard time in cracking its secrets. Sidney Poitier plays the role of Virgil Tibbs, the smart and resourceful detective who is investigating a series of robberies in San Francisco. He eventually discovers that the robberies are all linked to the Organization, but getting to the root of the problem and breaking it down proves to be a formidable challenge.

As Tibbs begins to investigate the Organization, he realizes that he is up against some of the most intelligent and ruthless criminals he has ever encountered. The Organization is highly organized, and its members are highly skilled, making it almost impossible for Tibbs to infiltrate.

Barbara McNair plays the role of Valerie Tibbs, Virgil's wife who is also an attorney. She is reluctant to get involved in her husband's investigation, but as she gets to understand the magnitude of what Tibbs is up against, she provides him with the support he needs.

Gerald S. O'Loughlin plays the role of Lt. Mattice, Tibbs' superior officer, who is initially skeptical about Tibbs' investigation. But as Tibbs unearths more and more damning evidence against the Organization, Mattice eventually comes around to his way of thinking.

The Organization is a tense and gritty film that showcases the talents of its cast. Sidney Poitier delivers a commanding performance that perfectly conveys Tibbs' intelligence, resourcefulness, and grit. Barbara McNair also shines in her role as Tibbs' supportive wife.

The movie's plot is well-crafted, and the tension builds as Tibbs and the police department get closer and closer to busting the Organization. The film's climax is intense and thrilling, as Tibbs and the police department finally succeed in bringing down the Organization.

The Organization is a classic crime thriller that is well worth watching. It features an engaging plot, strong performances from its cast, and plenty of tension and excitement. If you are a fan of crime dramas or Sidney Poitier, The Organization is definitely a film you do not want to miss.
