A simple request turns into a deadly nightmare for Carmel disc jockey Dave Garver. After a tryst with #1 fan Evelyn Draper, who calls into his show frequently to request the jazz standard "Misty," Dave's life spins ;-) out of control when he finds himself to be Evelyn's obsession. Dave's rekindled romance, Tobie, his maid Birdie and Sgt. McCallum all feel Evelyn's wrath before a final showdown between her and Dave where their relationship really hits the rocks ;-)
Play Misty For Me was Clint Eastwood's directorial debut. Originally taking place in LA, Clint switched the setting to his hometown of Carmel, which provided some breathtaking locales. The film was a critical and commercial success with Jessica Walter delivering a spectacular performance. The film was unofficially remade as Fatal Attraction (1987) the following decade.
