Synopsis by Hal Erickson
No relation to the 1987 film of the same name, 1983's Summer Heat is an R-rated "con on the run" affair. Bruce Davidson plays a starry-eyed young shepherd who manages to get himself a stiff jail sentence. With the help of girl friend Susan George, Davidson makes his escape. Hot in pursuit of the fugitive is surly lawkeeper Anthony Franciosa. While the sex scenes in Summer Heat don't show much, they are suggestive enough to earn the film its restrictive rating.
