Storyline

TV Reporter and Cameraman Cliff Reynolds(Pinsent), while filming Municipal Beach(Montreal)during a Four-Day Heatwave in the Summer of '74, coincidentally photographs Escaped Convict, Jerry Cuozzo(Dane), and a combination of concern of being identified, along with some avarice "shooting from the hip" on the part of Reynolds; Cuozzo(Dane) is exceptional at playing someone with a lot on his plate: Throw the Cops and those which whom he has double-crossed off his trail, and at the same time, use his girlfriend and female contact--along with Reynolds(Pinsent)--to accomplish his goal: make a score on the "shipment."

Not a particularly novel script; but the acting is superb, considering Canada should stick to Hockey rather than movie making!

It is a great movie and Domini Blythe(Cuozzo's girlfriend) along with Alexandra Stewart, are worth watching, too--Two very pretty ladies- Stewart is the better actress, though.

You probably have never heard of this film but The Heatwave Lasted Four Days is one of the better Canadian films of the 70s. It's about a news reporter (Gordon Pinsent) who gets involved with underworld figures. At first, he does it for extra cash but things soon become more complex than he bargained for. It has good performances from other familiar Canadian actors like Al Waxman and Lawrence Dane and a strong air of credibility is maintained throughout. A lot of Canadian films made around this time were less than wonderful and deserve to be forgotten but The Heatwave Lasted Four Days deserves some respect.
