Warner Bros. has released a "deluxe" edition of Lawrence Kasdan's Body Heat on DVD; written and directed by Kasdan, it was his attempt to make Double Indemnity. Oddly enough, George Lucas was an uncredited producer on the film -- remember when he used to make movies with actual people in them? The film starred Kathleen Turner and William Hurt and was a bit of a shocker when it hit theaters due to some "enthusiastic" sex scenes between the two stars. Other than that, it has your typical noir plot: pretty lady with a rich husband and the not-so-bright everyman who gets caught up in her scheme. The movie was a respectable homage but really didn't break any new ground; Kathleen Turner was good, but Barbara Stanwyck is better.
