In the beginning of the movie a pair of travelers are walking through woody terrain covered in deep snow, well dressed for cold winter. They reach some sort of bunker and go inside. There it turns out they are a man and a woman, and that the red-hued interior is unbearably warm. They are forced to remove all their clothing except for the underwear. The woman asks why he haven't warned her about the heat, and the man replied that she wouldn't have believed him. They are there to break a safe. The safe has a keypad with matrix with a lot of keys, maybe even 10x10=100 keys. One of them presses some of the keys in appropriate sequence and appropriate pattern, and the pressed keys are lit up.

This happens in the first 10 minutes, or so. It's probably a spy thriller from the late seventies.

EDIT: user Anderson reminded me of one more fact. After removing almost all their clothes they poured a liquid (could be a chilled champagne) on their bodies to better manage the heat. Anderson also mentions some special fuel pellets causing all the heat, and it could be true, but I have no memory of that detail.

This kind of puts me in mind of Spies Like Us, trying to see if any of the scenes you mention agree with the film plot – Rob Jun 11 '14 at 15:41
I know the comedy with Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd. This was no comedy, and there was one man and one woman. The woman maybe betrayed the man later in the film, but maybe I remembered that bit wrong. – Dialecticus Jun 11 '14 at 15:46
Ok, I'll stop searching ;) – Rob Jun 11 '14 at 15:49
Sounds vaguely familiar and Bond-like. Do you remember what the man and woman looked like, perhaps? – Walt Jun 12 '14 at 9:14
That would be Sneakers (1992) with Robert Redford. I saw my movie when I was very young, so late 70's are most likely the time when it was made. BTW, the point of heating in Sneakers is to heat the air to body temperature, so that sensors can't tell the difference. Sensors still worked but couldn't detect the difference in temperature. – Dialecticus Jul 25 '14 at 7:46

It might be Hot Ice, a low budget sexploitation film most famous for being the last film Ed Wood worked on before his death.

You might also be remembering this episode of Get Smart which has Agent 99 and a CIA agent in fur coats entering a bunker that's a red room although there's no stripping or keypad add far as I can see.

While it's not Get Smart I won't rule out Hot Ice. I just can't verify it. Even the subtitles are nowhere to be found. – Dialecticus Jun 24 '14 at 17:36
