Evelyn lets Dave pick her up at a bar; later at her apartment Evelyn admits that she is the cooing caller who repeatedly asks Dave to play the Erroll Garner classic “Misty.” From then on, the film is a lesson in how one casual date can turn your whole life around. Evelyn stalks Dave everywhere, ruins his business lunch, assaults his maid, mutilates his house and all of his belongings, and finally threatens to butcher his girlfriend Tobie Williams. You’ll never be able to hear that song again without looking over your shoulder.
Plot: A brief fling between a male disc jockey and an obsessed female fan takes a frightening, and perhaps even deadly turn when another woman enters the picture.

Wow…21 days AND under budget….
I was very impressed when I read the trivia for this film. It’s Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut…and he finished the film ahead of schedule and under budget–in only 21 days! I could see why he was called on many more times to direct–and it’s a shame he’s known more for an actor than director.
Eastwood plays a radio DJ. One night in a bar, he meets a young lady (Jessica Walter) and they end up spending the night together. She says there are no strings attached….but over time it’s obvious that she is majorly obsessed with him. She pushes him VERY hard–and no matter how much he tells her to get lost, she won’t take a hint. At first, it’s all seemingly innocent but over time she begins to show a crazier and crazier side. As for the title, every time she calls in to his show, she says ‘Play Misty for me’–as it’s ‘their’ song. As time passes, the film begins to look more and more like “Fatal Attraction”.
This is a very good film for a first effort from Eastwood. While the film has a few problems, overall, it’s quite thrilling and suspenseful. Additionally, Jessica Walter did a great job playing an Erotomaniac–an individual who is convinced that a high-status person LOVES them regardless of all evidence to the contrary. There also is a strong degree of a Borderline personality–with SERIOUS anti-social aspects (heck, she’s more than willing to kill–trust me on the diagnosis, it all fits). On the downside, I thought Eastwood’s acting performance was a bit too subdued and cool considering what was happening to him. And I have no idea why the segment with the Roberta Flack music video and the visit to the Monterrey Jazz Festival was included except as filler–it was like an intermission and pretty weird. But overall, it’s a nice little thriller.
By the way, for an even better film on the subject, try watching the French film “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not”–a truly brilliantly written film that you just have to see.
