I'm another fan of THE HOT SPOT. Great style and acting. Don
Johnson at his smirky best.
The film goes on a little too long to really be suspenseful
enough, but it's obviously made with an eye to what made the
original noir movies in this style work so well - atmosphere
The film credits (IIRC) both Charles Williams and another
writer for the script. Given that Williams had been dead for
some years when THE HOT SPOT was made, I wonder if it's made
from a re-written Williams script. Unless they're crediting
him for the dialogue - I'm not sure, as I haven't seen the
original novel (HELL HATH NO FURY).
