365 Movies: Hot Enough for June Review

Hot Enough for June stars Dirk Bogarde, Sylva Koscina, Robert Morley, and Leo McKern in this 1964 James Bond-esque spoof. Nicholas Whistler(Bogarde) a writer, is no longer part of the unemployed world, and is now working in an industrial job, which confuses him greatly. He tries everything to annoy the boss but the boss hires him on the spot, but Whistler doesn't know the real reason, why he got hired. The job is an espionage spy after 007's death, they need a replacement, so they choose Whistler. While along the ride of his new "job", Whistler gets himself into all kinds of messes and gets himself involved with a gorgeous woman named Vlasta Simoneva(Koscina), who just happens to be against him. Just like any Bond movie, Whistler and Simoneva have an affair, but without either knowing about the real motives behind the affair. There were so many laugh out loud moments and it was adorably fun to watch. I loved the part when Whistler, is running from the Secret Police, and makes a turn into an alley, where a Mother and daughter are walking, and he grabs hold of the girl's hand in order to keep himself from them. Another bonus was the costumes, that Dirk had to wear. Hahaha What funny outfits to be wearing!

This sounds hilarious! It's not on dvd (I checked) except in region 2. But I'd love to see it!

Yay!! Another convert for Hot Enough for June! I'm so excited you liked it Nicola. I loved the part where he holds the little girl's hand in his getaway, too. :D

That reminds me, I need to work on Kate's Dirk as Robin Hood finger puppet! HAHAHA!
