Am I the only one to notice that "Fatal Attraction" is a remake of "Play Misty for Me"?

The stories are exactly the same, except for two minor differences: this time the husband is married and the occupations are different.

Also, a film titled "Fatal Attraction" with Sally Kellerman, Stephen Lack and John Huston, and a similar story directed by Michael Grant, was released in Los Angeles exactly two years ago.

Are there no more copyright or plagiarism laws?

\o7 Mary Laidman of Van Nuys also noticed the similarity.
