There was brief nudity by the hooker at the beginning of the film before she was murdered. The camera work was intentionally a bit blurry to not focus clearly on her breasts, although they were seen.

After catching his pre-teen son smoking, Tibbs forces him to smoke a cigar and drink alcohol, with the inevitable rush to the nearest toilet. Later, Tibbs slaps the boy's face three times.
