TRAILER - Play Misty for Me (1971)

Long before Glenn Close went Elmer Fudd on Michael Douglas and cooked him a rabbit for dinner came this little shocker from director and star Clint Eastwood. Play Misty for Me was his directorial debut. The trailer really doesn't do the film justice, as it is a well crafted thriller with an amazingly psychotic performance from Jessica Walter. She plays an absolute nut job who can't take no for an answer after disk jokey Clint refuses to start a relationship with her after a one night stand. A Valentines Day movie for the deranged that will make men think twice about flirting with the barmaid with that crazy gleam in her eye. Don Siegel, Clint's mentor and often times director, plays a bartender in the film.
