Harry Kellerman is a voice on the telephone, a gossipy and threatening voice that torments the rock composer Georgie Soloway, telling his past and present girlfriends unpleasant things about him. Georgie is rich and famous, but he has become insomniac and has suicidal thoughts. A neurotic thriller that alternates dreams and fantasies with reality until it becomes elusive. Starring Dustin Hoffman (in a remarkable role) and an equally freaked-out Barbara Harris (who played Albuquerque in Nashville).
