When the drifter Harry Madox reaches a small town in Texas, he gets a job as used car salesman with the dealer George Harshaw and settles down in a hotel room. During a fire, Harry observes that the local bank is left empty and open without any security. Sooner he plots a scheme to rob the bank, provoking a fire in his room to distract the employees. When Harry meets George’s wife Dolly Harshaw, the easy woman teases him and they have sex. Harry becomes the prime suspect of the bank heist and is arrested, but Dolly provided the necessary alibi to release him and blackmails him to have a love affair with her. However, Harry falls in love for Gloria Harper, who works as accountant in the dealership. He discovers that Gloria is blackmailed by the despicable Frank Sutton and he decides to press Sutton. But in the end, Dolly gets what she wants. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil A loner drives into a small Texas town and gets himself a job at a used car dealership. He gets an idea for robbing a small local bank after he tries to open a new bank account at the same time a fire occurs nearby. The bank was left open while all of the employees went to fight the fire. The manipulative boss’ wife wishes to use him for her own purposes – “I always get what I want, Harry”. He resists, however, as he finds himself falling in love with the accountant at work, who has her own problem to work out.

Film Review

Often dull, filled with unsympathetic characters and with some rather ludicrous twists along the way, The Hot Spot is a big disappointment. The story revolves around Harry Madox, a mysterious loner who shows up in a small Texas town and immediately gets a job as a car salesman. Before long he’s carrying on an affair with the boss’ wife while simultaneously falling for the beautiful young woman who works at the car dealership. In his spare time he robs a bank and despite the fact he’ll be the obvious suspect he doesn’t immediately leave town. Smart enough to rob a bank, not smart enough to leave afterwards. That’s just the first of what will soon be many annoying and unbelievable plot contrivances. So our "hero" is soon arrested but then freed for no good reason. And then things devolve even further as Madox, the two women in his life and a slimy deadbeat who lives on the outskirts of town all become tangled up in a big web of nonsense. The whole thing strains credulity and i…

The Hot Spot admirably captures (at least in the eyes of this Brit viewer) the atmosphere of a deadbeat Texan town, though this image is reinforced by those of its inhabitants featured in the film. There’s a seedy owner of a used-car lot (who at least lives in some style) and his blatantly sex-mad wife, an equally seedy bank manager whose staff leave their tills and unlocked cash drawers when nearby buildings are on fire, and a blackmailing redneck. At least the police seem reasonable guys – no suggestion of corruption, rule-bending or the aggressive approach of those appearing In the Heat of the Night – but surely they would check the fingerprints of their prime suspect against those left at the scene of crime? It’s not clear whether Don Johnson’s drifter is a career criminal or an opportunist, but, a nifty little car apart, he has little to show for a man of his abilities, which include hunkiness, heroics and glib sales technique.I came across the film when channel-flicking (happily…

THE HOT SPOT seems to take place in a town of whatever size is convenient at the moment. The town is so small that the volunteer firefighting force can’t be mustered without leaving the bank unstaffed, but it’s big enough to support a spacious strip joint with girls on four platforms at a time. The used car lot seems to need only one salesman, the boss, and a clerk, but it supports the boss and his wife in an enormous mansion. Oh yes, someone mentions that he’s also in real estate. I wonder who his buyers are. The production looks as if it couldn’t even afford enough extras to give the impression of a populace.A bigger problem, though, is the lead actors. It’s hard to identify with Don Johnson in a part that should have gone to Dennis Hopper himself if only Hopper were younger. Hopper can draw our sympathy or fascination by giving his character a look of underlying fear or insanity. Don Johnson just looks smug, and so does Virginia Madsden.The best thing is the soundtrack, matching th…
