Play Misty for Me
DIRECTOR: CLINT EASTWOOD
CAST: CLINT EASTWOOD, JESSICA WALTER, DONNA MILLS, JOHN LARCH, DON SIEGEL
Eastwood’s directorial debut, made after he’d paid close attention to maestros Sergio Leone and Don Siegel on set, is a taut psychological thriller that takes place in the auteur/star’s picturesque hometown of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, where Clint’s primetime disc jockey and professional bachelor faces retribution from discarded one-night-stand Jessica Walter, in a career-best performance. Includes visits from Johnny Otis and Cannonball Adderley in a documentary-style trip to the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Play Misty For Me is screening as part of the series: Universal in the '70s: Part II
