Heat (1972) also known as Andy Warhol's Heat, is an American film written and directed by Paul Morrissey, produced by Andy Warhol, and starring Joe Dallesandro, Sylvia Miles, and Andrea Feldman. The film was conceived by Warhol as a parody of Sunset Boulevard (1950).
Joey Davis (Dallesandro) is an unemployed former child star who supports himself as a hustler in Los Angeles. Joey uses sex to get his landlady to reduce his rent, then seduces Sally Todd (Miles), a former Hollywood starlet. Sally tries to help Joey revive his career but her status as a mediocre ex-actress proves to be quite useless. Sally's psychotic daughter Jessica (Feldman) further complicates the relationship between Sally and the cynical, emotionally numb Joey.
