Clint tells us how he yearned to be a director from the time he was on 'Rawhide' to finally obtaining the approval of his mentor, Don Siegel. He then asked Lew R. Wasserman, a Universal studio executive if he could direct a story called 'Play Misty For Me.' Lew said yes but that he wouldn't be paid as the Director. Clint agreed and began to locate the cast and crew he desired. Cast and crew members chosen were not known but they fit his vision for the film. Written by

This documentary, featured on the Collector's Edition DVD for "Play Misty for Me" and dedicated to Don Siegel, discloses additional information about the story, the screenplay, the production and casting of this film. Clint Eastwood tells details of Jo Heims' story, how Universal bought the rights and he was successful in directing this movie, with a low budget and a tight schedule. Jessica Walters tells how much she loved making this film. The still very beautiful Donna Mills tells how she was invited to participate in this movie through the indication of Burt Reynolds. There are also the participation of the producer Robert Daley and the film historian and author Richard Schickel. This documentary, released in 2001 in the Collector's Edition DVD for "Play Misty for Me", was shamefully released in Brazil by Columbia and Universal (together) without subtitle in Portuguese. None of the Extras have subtitles in Portuguese, only in English and Japanese, showing the common total of respect of Columbia and Universal with the Brazilian consumers. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Play It Again: A Look Back at Play Misty for Me"
