City Heat

(USA, 1984, 97 minutes)

During the Prohibition, a private detective is murdered and his partner decides to find out who did it and why. Breezy star gangster comedy that is quite enjoyable as long as you do not expect much from it. Original writer and director Blake Edwards left in pre-production due to "creative differences" with the stars, and requested to be credited on the rewritten script as "Sam O. Brown".
