Heat (1972)


“Heat” is a parody of “Sunset Boulevard.” Joey Davis, an unemployed ex-child actor, uses sex to get his landlady, Lydia, to reduce his rent, and then tries to exert his influence on Sally Todd, who is now washed-up and wasn’t even more than slightly important at the height of her career. Sally tries to help Joey, until he realizes that she just isn’t well-connected enough to be of any service to him. The affair is complicated by Sally’s psychotic, maybe-lesbian-or-maybe-not daughter Jessica, who tries to muscle in on her mother’s relationship with Joey.

Director: Paul Morrissey.
Stars: Joe Dallesandro, Sylvia Miles, Andrea Feldman, Pat Ast, Lester Persky, Eric Emerson, Harold Childe, John Hallowell, Gary Koznocha, Bonnie Walder, Ray Vestal, Pat Parlemon, Bonnie Walder.

    The plot, and acting were poor. Mainly lots of dirty language. There were a few scenes that were sexually interesting, bul no full frontal nudity.
