Klute by Alan J Pakula ( Visual )
23 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A laserdisc version of the film, with original theatrical trailer. This film works both as a genre entertainment - a suspense thriller in which an ex-policeman investigates the mysterious disappearance of a research scientist - and as a character study of some psychological and moral complexity. The real centre is Jane Fonda's portrayal of a high-bracket call girl, Bree, who wants to quit yet enjoys the control she exercises over her customers. Cable the murderer, and Klute are not psychologically rounded characters. They can be seen to represent the duality in Bree's nature: Cable, the malignant and unfeeling side, Klute the projection of her positive and loving feelings
