City Heat

WHEN A HOTSHOT COP AND A WISE-GUY DETECTIVE GET TOGETHER… THE HEAT IS ON!

Some time in the 1930s, private eye Mike Murphy’s (Burt Reynolds) partner is murdered and he is forced to team up with Speer (Clint Eastwood), a cop he hates, to find the killer. Old buddies Clint and Burt keep arguing, but thereā€™s no mistaking their true feelings for each other in this movie that is aching to be as entertaining as the old Bogart vehicles. All the actors are fun to watch, but this is otherwise pretty boring stuff; the fistfights and shootouts are strictly routine.Ā 

1984-U.S. 97 min. Color. Directed byĀ Richard Benjamin. Cast: Clint Eastwood (Speer), Burt Reynolds (Mike Murphy), Jane Alexander (Addy), Madeline Kahn, Rip Torn, Irene Cara… Richard Roundtree.

Trivia: Blake Edwards was first hired as director, but was replaced; he co-wrote the film and uses the pseudonym ā€œSam O. Brownā€ (S.O.B.).Ā
