Since I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood’s work, of course, I was really eager to check his directing debut. So, that’s where it all started for him, at least, as far as you consider his career as a director. You can guess that, at the time, the studios thought that Eastwood was just another actor who wanted to pretend to be a director and since he was a huge star, they thought they should giv... read more

Disc jockey Dave Garver attracts the amorous attentions of a demented fan named Evelyn Draper. Evelyn lets Dave pick 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.

" Watched: 3/10/2018 Rating: 7.5 Format: Blu Ray A great Directoral debut and performance from Clint Eastwood but Jessica Walter absolutely killed it playing an obsessed Stalker. "

My Movie Highlights of the 1970s (+Watchlists) (65 movies items)

"I know it's a classic, some even say it was ahead of its time. But for me it was a below average romantic thriller that partly felt (unintentionally) like a comedy or a parody of a thriller. Most Hitchcock movies are more thrilling. I also didn't like the soundtrack (except the deadly song "Misty"). But I liked to see Eastwood in one of his earlier films."
