YEAR RELEASED: 1981
ABOUT THE MOVIE (from the sleeve): NED RACINE IS A CASUAL, LIKABLE, UNAMBITIOUS FLORIDA LAWYER WHOSE LIFE IS COASTING ALONG IN NEUTRAL...UNTIL HE MEETS MATTY WALKER. SHE'S A SIREN IN WHITE, A VISION OF LUST, A BOLT OF HEAT LIGHTNING THAT CHARGES THE LANDSCAPE. NED KNOWS THAT MATTY'S THE KIND OF WOMAN A MAN WOULD KILL TO BE WITH. SO HE DOES.
WILLIAM HURT AND KATHLEEN TURNER STRIKE THE SPARKS IN BODY HEAT, A SEXY, SORDID, HAUNTING STORY THAT ECHOES THE POWERFUL IMPACT OF '40'S FILM NOIR MELODRAMAS LIKE "DOUBLE INDEMNITY" AND "THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE"...BUT WITH ENERGY, IRONY AND PASSION THAT COULD ONLY FLARE OUT IN THE '80'S. NED AND MATTY CONSPIRE TO KILL MATTY'S RICH HUSBAND (CRENNA), FLEE TO A TROPICAL PARADISE AND LIVE ON HIS FORTUNE. BUT THEY HAVEN'T GOT A CHANCE...AND YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHY.
HURT, THE EXCITING STAR OF "ALTERED STATES", "THE BIG CHILL", "KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN" AND "CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD", AND THEN-NEWCOMER TURNER, WHO HAS SINCE GONE ON TO HITS LIKE "ROMANCING THE STONE" AND "PRIZZI'S HONOR", IGNITE THE SCREEN WITH A FEVERISH INTENSITY. THEIR FLASH-POINT CHEMISTRY IS FANNED BY SCREENWRITER LAWRENCE KASDAN, MAKING HIS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT WITH AN ASSURANCE THAT ALSO MARKS HIS SUBSEQUENT MOVIES "THE BIG CHILL" AND "SILVERADO".
THE RESULTS CRACKLE. SETTLE BACK, TURN UP THE AIR-CONDITIONING AND LET BODY HEAT GENERATE ITS WICKED WARMTH.
