Play Misty For Me 1971
Dave has a brief fling with a sexy fan who calls his radio program and asks him to “Play Misty For Me” Unfortunately this one-night stand between a savvy playboy disc jockey and an obsessed female fan turns into a nightmarish game of cat and mouse.
Spirally toward a deadly climax once a woman enters the picture.
The story is by Jo Heims, (You’ll Like My Mother 1972, Nightmare in Badham County 1976 and uncredited for Dirty Harry 1971).
Directed and starring that guy with the satin-toned whispering voice, Clint Eastwood, as Dave, Jessica Walter as the psychotically iconic Evelyn Draper, and Donna Mills as Dave’s love interest, Tobie.
Also starring John Larch as Sgt. McCallum.
Original soundtrack by Dee Barton and great use of Roberta Flack’s timeless song The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. Predating Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction, Walter’s portrayal of an obsessive psychopath is absolutely stunning. Truly one of the most memorable thrillers in film history!
“The scream you hear may be your own!”
“… an invitation to terror…”
