  1. Harper

    Harper, released in the UK as The Moving Target, is a 1966 film based on Ross Macdonald's novel The Moving Target and adapted for the screen by novelist William Goldman, who was a big admirer of Ross MacDonald. The film stars Paul Newman as the eponymous Lew Harper. Goldman received a 1967 Edgar Award for Best Motion Picture Screenplay. The film captures elements of the traditional "buddy" film. The film also pays homage to the Humphrey Bogart films by bringing Bogart's wife Lauren Bacall into the story. She plays the role of the wounded and woeful wife, the person most concerned with a missing husband, a role similar to the character General Sternwood in the Bogart and Bacall 1946 movie The Big Sleep. In 1975, Newman reprised the role in The Drowning Pool.
