HVS Top Five “Heat Wave” movies

HVS Top Five “Heat Wave” movies
It’s July and one fun thing to do is sit in an icy theater and watch a movie. Many great ones took place during a heat wave, so sit down, grab a cool beverage, and get ready to sweat.

Rear Window – Jimmy Stewart stars as a photographer confined to a wheelchair because of a work accident. During a summer heat wave, he passes the time by watching his neighbors, who keep their windows open to stay cool. Most of them are just interesting…one may be a murderer.

In the Heat of the Night – Sidney Poitier is a big city African American police detective who finds himself investigating a vicious crime in a racist small town in Mississippi.

The Long Hot Summer – Paul Newman is at his cool best as a drifter who cons his way into the good graces of a Southern aristocrat. As always he gets the girl.

Lawrence of Arabia – O.K. it’s not technically a heat wave because it’s always hot in Arabia! This film is widely considered one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. It depicts experiences in the Arabian Peninsula during World War I and struggles with war, identity, and divided allegiances between country and comrades.

The Seven Year Itch – Marylin Monroe shines in this movie about a guy whose family goes to Maine during a New York heat wave. He stays home, meets the femme fatale, enjoys her company, and in the end remains loyal realizing what he has.
