    Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this contemporary thriller about psychotic obsession. Eastwood also takes the lead in the starring role as Dave Garver, a popular radio disc jockey who repeatedly receives on-air phone requests from a sexy female fan to "play Misty for me". When the woman, Evelyn Draper (Jessica Walter), orchestrates a rendezvous with Dave at his favorite nightspot, the two begin a torrid affair. But when Dave decides to end the relationship, Evelyn's obsession turns to violence. Soon everything and everyone in Dave's life becomes a target for Evelyn's increasingly deadly campaign of terror. Beautifully photographed on location in Eastwood's hometown of Carmel, California, Play Misty for Me continues to be considered one of the great modern-day thrillers.

    Customer Reviews

    Eastwood's acting in this movie is really very good as well.
    Quadro Sinead Summer
    Predecessor to thrillers such as "Fatal Attraction," this is one of Eastwood's best films (as far as I'm concerned).
    As much as I like the song, I can never hear it without immediately thinking of the movie.

    Format: DVD
    Play Misty For Me is Clint Eastwood's directorial debut and it is an entertaining thriller about obsession that is a precursor for films like Fatal Attraction. Mr. Eastwood plays against type as a DJ Dave Garver, who works at a jazz station in Carmel, CA (The town where Mr. Eastwood would become the real life mayor ). Mr. Eastwood is usually the strong, silent type who seeks revenge or is an enforcer. In this film, he is a sensitive ladies man, who reads poetry on the air and plays jazz music. He is also the victim. He has what he thinks is a one-night affair with Evelyn Draper played by Jessica Walter. Evelyn claims that there's no strings attached, but that turns out to be the farthest thing from the truth. She stalks Garver, showing up unannounced at his home, at a bar he frequents and in one instance tries to kill herself in his bathroom. In the meantime, Garver is trying to get back together with his former girlfriend Tobie played by a young Donna Mills. Evelyn trashes Garver's house and almost kills his housekeeper, Birdie (Clarice Taylor) and is taken away by the police and put into an asylum. Garver thinks it's over, but Evelyn gets out of the asylum and there is one last chilling scene involving scissors and a knife. Mr. Eastwood uses the natural beauty of the Monterey Peninsula to great effect in the film, with wide shots of the rolling surf and picturesque sunsets. There is one odd montage in the middle of the film which is like a music video set to Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", in which Tobie & Garver roam through the landscape and end up in a secluded pond. The use of the two year old song in the film actually propelled it to number one on the charts and made a star out of the relatively unknown Ms. Flack.Read more ›

    Format: VHS Tape
    Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this 1971 suspense/thriller, "Play Misty for Me," in which he also stars as Dave Garver, a late night radio disc jockey for a small station in Carmel, California. During his show, he opens the phones to take requests, at which times a frequent caller-- a woman named Evelyn (Jessica Walter)-- always asks for the same tune, "Misty." Her obsession, it turns out, is not with that particular record, but with Garver, who is currently sorting out a relationship gone bad with a young artist, Tobie (Donna Mills), but which may be on the mend in light of the fact that Tobie has just returned to town after a lengthy absence in the wake of their breakup. In the interim, Garver has become entangled with Evelyn, a fan he soon discovers gives new meaning to the term "fanatic."
    Eastwood invades Hitchcock territory with this film, which it turns out was indeed a harbinger of the course his career would take from this point on, that of directing and starring in his own movies. With this one, it's apparent that he had that special touch from the beginning; he knows unequivocally what he likes, what works and how to deliver it. The only weakness in the film (if you can even call it a weakness), would be the use of longshots during a couple of scenes between Garver and Tobie that take place on the coast. It adds a scenic vista for a backdrop, but listening to the dialogue with the actors in the distance gives it a dialogue-added-later feeling. It's a minor flaw, however, that takes nothing away from the overall impact of the film, especially as Eastwood establishes a deliberate pace that allows the tension to mount throughout.

    Play Misty for Me is Clint Eastwood's first movie as a director/actor and he does a fine job with it. Released in 1971, this movie is Fatal Attraction before fatal attraction.

    Eastwood plays a local popular disk jockey in a relatively small town who is a bit of playboy as well. His girlfriend, whom he loves, left him because he can't keep it in his pants long enough. One night Eastwood runs into an attractive woman in a bar played by Jessica Walter and of course he winds up in bed with her. The problem for Eastwood is the woman becomes more and more crazily obsessed with him and can't get rid of her. She shows up at not only is house unexpectedly, but other places as well. Things really start to boil over when his girlfriend comes back to town and he wants get back with her. The crazy fatal attraction just gets even crazier and scarier at this point.

    Overall, this is a well done, entertaining, and at times, suspenseful movie. Eastwood did a fine job in debut as a director.

    Probably the best film ever directed by Clint Eastwood.

    This film opened the door for other later to come "Female-Psycho" films such as "Fatal Attraction", Misty is an immaculate film capturing all the qualities of a true suspenseful and horror film, and manages to sustain superb acting quality from start to finish. The character Evelyn Draper, portrayed by Jessica Walter, is this lovable, attractive and very insecure wacko who has a very in depth obsession with disc jockey David Garber played by Clint. When Clint learns of her mental tipsiness and turns his back, her obsession turns to a complete nightmare, turning his world completely upside down.

    The film is shot in a very mysterious and beautiful part of California, and has a very simplistic style throughout. Without a lot of characters, the film allows you to really sink your teeth into the story.

    Definitely a must see for anyone who appreciates good film.

    What's your point? They were also watching a lot of other movies, too, and eating dinner, and using the bathroom, and having sex, and all sorts of other things.
