Walter's long résumé includes Golden-Globe nominated turns as a driver's estranged wife in the race-car drama Grand Prix (1966) and an unstable stalker in Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, Play Misty for Me (1971). She nabbed an Emmy in 1975 for her portrayal of a female chief of detectives in the short-run television series "Amy Prentiss."
Later in life, Walter struck gold doling out throaty insults as self-centered matriarch Lucille Bluth on the critically acclaimed comedy "Arrested Development." The role earned her an Emmy nomination along with multiple Screen Actors Guild ensemble honors.
Silver-tongued radio disc jockey Dave (Clint Eastwood) can't help but notice the persistent calls from a female to "play 'Misty' for me." But a chance meeting with infatuated fan Evelyn leads to a brief and steamy love affair. Dave quickly learns he's in for more than a little night music, and that Evelyn will stop at nothing -- even the return of one of Dave's old flames -- to have him all to herself. The film marks Eastwood's directorial debut.
