Sunday Afternoon Drive Film - Harper
Paul Newman as, Harper. 1966
A classic film starring the iconic Paul Newman. Some good car moments with a Porsche 356 Speedster. It's always fun watching films from an era when the cars were just old used cars and roads were nice and open with only light traffic.
A little about the movie.
Struggling private eye Lew Harper (Paul Newman) takes a simple missing-person case that quickly spirals into something much more complex. Elaine Sampson (Lauren Bacall), recently paralyzed in a horse-riding accident, wants Harper to find her missing oil baron husband, but her tempestuous teenage stepdaughter Miranda (Pamela Tiffin) thinks Mrs. Sampson knows more than she's letting on. The film is based on Ross MacDonald's 1949 mystery "The Moving Target," featuring private eye Lew Archer. More Triva....
