Academy Award winner Paul Newman stars with Hollywood legends Lauren Bacall, Janet Leigh and Julie Harris as the tough guy Los Angeles private detective Lew Harper. Down on his luck and almost broke, Harper (Newman--Road to Perdition) takes a job finding the missing husband of Elaine Sampson (Bacall--Birth). But what should be a simple case takes Harper on a downward spiral through the dark side of the entertainment capital. The screenplay by Academy Award winner William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President's Men) was based on Ross MacDonald's novel The Moving Target.
