New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 50 years on, “Klute” is still its own kind of noir

Alan J. Pakula’s Klute is full of surprises, not least of which is its title. It takes its name from one of its principal characters, small-town detective John Klute, who is tasked with investigating the disappearance of a family friend. Played by an achingly young Donald Sutherland, Klute must head to the festering metropolis that was 1970s New York during one of the city’s most infamous low points and enlist the help of Bree Daniels (Jane Fonda). She’s a high-class call girl who may be connected to the disappearance—and much more.
