The Drowning Pool

By (Publisher)

Harper, the wisecracking private investigator, goes to New Orleans to help out an old flame, Iris Deveraux. After the murder of her mother-in-law, someone implicates Iris and attempts to blackmail her. Harper has more suspects than he needs - Iris' sixteen-year-old Lolita-esque daughter, a former chauffer, a businessman and his kinky wife, and even Iris herself. What he uncovers is a web of tangled affairs and distractions all clouded by the murky water of the drowning pool.

Your Memories Shared!

"Paul Newman working on screen with His wife, Joanne Woodward, is always a treat. While not a slam bang action Film, this Movie's big on character study and 40's noir dialogue. Even the minor players (Melanie Griffith, James Woods) command Your attention. When I saw this in a Theatre there were only 4 or 5 other people there. After seeing it I couldn't understand why. People always complain "Why can't they make 'em like they used to?" They did with this one. [Editor's note: Well put, Michael!]"
