Harper

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.

What's new on This Thing, Anyway?

I've recently added "Video Store Mode" to the options, which should give a little bit more of a feeling of browsing the aisles, looking for an evening's entertainment by deliberating between great box art. Choose your services and click "Video Store Mode" to try it out!

Another new addition is the "Trailer Playlist," which allows you to pick your specified streaming services, genres and date range, and creates a custom playlist of trailers for your entertainment!

Lastly, I've made the site a bit more mobile-friendly and have started to add links to genre film websites on the films themselves, so you can find some outside opinions on the classy trash you love!
