PAPER MOON (1973) B/W widescreen 103m dir: Peter Bogdanovich
w/Ryan O'Neal, Tatum O'Neal, Madeline Kahn
Finely engraved story of a depression-era Kansas con man selling Bibles (to women just made widows) with the aid of an innocent nine-year-old determined to be corrupted. The interplay between the con man and his tiny sidekick (in real life father and daughter) is irresistibly sentimental. Tiny Tatum won a Supporting Actress Oscar.
