Synopsis

Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this edgy psycho-thriller as a California radio DJ who doesn't take his number-one fan (Jessica Walter) as seriously as she'd like. Given her response to rejection, he might not live long to regret it... Morally murky and as unnerving as a crank call from a blocked number, this set the bunny-boiling template for 1987's smash suspenser Fatal Attraction.

Review

Clint Eastwood proves he's a lot more than a granite-faced actor in his impressive directorial debut that sees him as a late-night DJ plagued by a woman caller constantly asking him to play Erroll Garner's song Misty for her. Enter Jessica Walter as his stalker, in a scary performance as the woman who takes her obsession to the brink of madness. Hold tight for plenty of jumps and spine-chilling moments in this splendid chiller. Set in Clint's home town of Carmel, California, where he became mayor in 1986. Clint's first shot as director was to film his former director Don (Dirty Harry) Siegel's cameo as a bartender.
