A good movie

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.

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.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: June (38 movies items)

"June 18 "Something wrong?" "No, I keep getting the feeling I know you from somewhere." For a movie that was Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, it was pretty solid. While there is a few scenes that go on longer that they need to most notably the jazz festival scene, it's still a very creepy psychological thriller and it's very well acted especially from Jessica Walter as the obsessed fan."

A good movie

“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 give him his wish but they didn’t pay much attention to the end-result. They were not the only ones though as it took about 20 years before Clint Eastwood was taken really seriously as a director. Anyway, how was this directing debut? To be honest, it was a decent flick but still nothing really great though. I mean, it felt like an obvious warm-up for Eastwood who was basically playing around with ” read more

Too Young For Heart Attacks: Don't show your kids (13 movies items)

"This movie is really not a horror movie. Actually, it's a pretty decent relationship thriller starring and directed by Clint Eastwood. But when you're no more than 5, it's a terrifying experience in being extremely afraid. There's screaming, blood, knife attacks... stuff kids just aren't ready for. "

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E2 - February 2012 (34 movies items)

" While I didn't make it to watching "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly". The films phillydude sent helped keep this is pretty heavy Eastwood film month. Have to say this is an odd little film from the 70's. The style is very reminiscent of The American New Wave movement but managed to not fully indulge in the self importance boredom found in that niche of film making."

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2011 (399 movies items)

"Watched: 20.11 -------- Alussa ihan kiehtova, mutta loppua kohden kadottaa sen kiehtovuuden. Naispääosan likka ei ollut näyttelijälahjoiltaan kovinkaan kummoinen, joka saattaa olla osasyy tuohon lässähtämiseen. Mutta ei ollenkaan huono ohjausdebyytti Eastwoodilta."
