Academy Award winners Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward star in this thriller about a big-city private detective who travels to the Deep South to help a former girlfriend ... only to be caught in The Drowning Pool. Private eye Lew Harper's (Newman) first surprise comes when he learns the identity of the woman who has hired him--Iris Devereaux (Woodward). And every subsequent twist leads Harper deeper into a web of lies, blackmail and murder that may cost him his very life.
