Play It Again: A Look Back at Play Misty for Me (2001)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Good, 45-minute documentary on the making of PLAY MISTY FOR ME, the now classic shocker that marked the directing debut of Clint Eastwood who also played the lead. Eastwood is joined here by producer Robert Daley, writer Dean Reisner and co-stars Jessica Walter and Donna Mills. Eastwood starts off talking about his desires to direct and what brought him to this story. We hear how he almost lost the picture until he signed a deal with Universal and then he goes into details on how he got to direct the part. The casting is discussed in detail as is the entire production including talk about the $725,000 budget and how they had to spend $25,000 to get the rights to the song Misty, which the studio at first didn't want to do. All of the people involved are very energetic as they look back on the making of the film and we get all sorts of good stories. Eastwood, as usual, is at the top of his game as he's always entertaining to listen to. He goes into great detail about the production as well as the post-production when the film was finally released to some mixed reviews. We hear about some changes that were made to the screenplay while they were in production as well as why the ending was changed from the book. Fans of the film are certainly going to enjoy hearing the stars look back on the film and it's certainly worth watching after seeing the movie.
