Play Misty for Me ★★★ 1971 (R)

A radio deejay obliges a psychotic woman's song request and suddenly finds himself the target of her obsessive behavior, which rapidly turns from seductive to murderous. Auspicious directorial debut for Eastwood, borrowing from the Siegel playbook (look for the director's cameo as a barkeep). Based on a story by Heims. 102m/C VHS, DVD . Jessica Walter, Donna Mills, John Larch, Irene Hervey, Jack Ging, Clint Eastwood; Cameos: Donald Siegel; D: Clint Eastwood; W: Jo Heims, Dean Riesner; C: Bruce Surtees; M: Dee Barton.
