Top screenwriter Kasdan bowed to Double Indemnity with his directorial debut. Confidently combining classical storytelling and contemporary sizzle, the sleeper satisfied audiences with a taste for steamy noir stylings a need for audiences and put its cast on Hollywood’s hot list. Summertime in Florida enables lawyer William Hurt to scratch an itch with married woman Kathleen Turner, but what to do about her husband Richard Crenna? John Barry’s score matches Turner in sultriness and beauty.
