The Drowning Pool

Movie Summary

Director:
Stuart Rosenberg
Released:
1975
Rating:
PG

The Drowning Pool is the second film to star Paul Newman as L.A. private eye Lew Harper. This time around, Harper is called to New Orleans by a former flame, Iris Devereaux. She has received letters threatening to expose marital infidelities and she wants Harper to find out who sent them. Things get complicated quickly - the case involves tough, maybe corrupt, local cops; Iris's alarmingly precocious teenage daughter Schuyler; her homosexual husband and virago mother-in-law; a rich, ruthless oil tycoon, Kilbourne; and the latter's unloving and just possibly murderous wife Mavis. Harper finds himself facing slow death in a room slowly filling up with water, the "drowning pool" of the title. This 1975 follow-up to the 1966 hit Harper was directed by Stuart Rosenberg.
