We continue with thrills and chills in our Rialto Recommends this week with Clint Eastwood's directorial debut PLAY MISTY FOR ME from 1971. Long, long before Fatal Attraction, PLAY MISTY FOR ME set audiences on edge. A brief fling between a male disc jockey and an obsessed female fan takes a frightening, and perhaps even deadly turn when another woman enters the picture. Roger Ebert said "PLAY MISTY FOR ME is not the artistic equal of Psycho (1960), but in the business of collecting an audience into the palm of its hand and then squeezing hard, it is supreme. It doesn't depend on a lot of surprises to maintain the suspense. There ARE some surprises, sure, but mostly the film's terror comes from the fact that the strange woman is capable of anything." While Time Magazine said "On an informal Richter scale of movie terror, PLAY MISTY FOR ME registers a few gasps, some frissons and at least one spleen-shaking shudder. A good little scare show, in other words, despite various gaps in logic and probability." PLAY MISTY FOR ME is streaming on Peacock or available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, DirectTV and others HERE.
