Play Misty For Me Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Clint Eastwood (making his very assured directorial debut) is a poetry-spouting stud-muffin DJ stalked by a maniacally amorous fan after a misguided one-night stand in this enjoyably schlocky, undeniably effective film about good intentions gone murderously wacky. Although many of the very 1970s trappings presented here may ultimately be too dated to be taken seriously (including a highly self-indulgent jazz number and a hilariously gooey seduction number between Eastwood and Donna Mills), the core premise of infatuation taken out of bounds remains uncomfortably plausible--and... was influential enough to be appropriated by one of the biggest hits of the 1980s. (Here's a hint--it starred Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and a very unfortunate bunny rabbit.) A well-staged and occasionally very frightening thriller worth watching for Jessica Walter's peerlessly unhinged performance alone. Frequent Eastwood collaborator Don Siegel (director of Dirty Harry, Coogan's Bluff and The Beguiled, to name but a few) has a nice cameo as Murphy, the moustachioed, chess-playing bartender. --Andrew Wright, [show more]

Dave Garland (Clint Eastwood) is a Californian DJ who runs a late night call-in show, and receives regular requests from a female caller for Erroll Garner's 'Misty'. Following a bust-up with his regular girlfriend, Tobie (Donna Mills), Dave has a one-night stand with Evelyn Draper (Jessica Walter) after meeting her at his regular night spot. It transpires that Evelyn is the mystery caller on Dave's show, but after their night together she becomes obsessed with him, refusing to accept his subsequent rapprochement with Tobie. Evelyn's rage at first takes a suicidal turn, then becomes murderous as she makes violent threats towards Dave and Tobie.

Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play A laid-back jazz DJ (Eastwood) with a taste for good-looking cars and women enjoys what he thinks is a one night stand with an attractive brunette (Jessica Walter) who admits she’s one of his biggest fans But the one night becomes a recurring nightmare as she pursues him relentlessly turning his carefree existence into a living hell that threatens to destroy everything that matters to him
