PAPER MOON ~ Priceless Bit of Nostalgia

Peter Bogdonovich's homage to the 1930's is in full blossom here with this delightful period piece starring Ryan O'Neal as a small time con artist who meets his match in 9 year old real-life daughter Tatum as they scam their way through the mid-west selling deluxe edition bibles to recent widows. Madelien Kahn is hysterically funny as Trixie Delight who they pick up along the way and the episodic road-trip nature of the film is quite endearing as the duo discover a lot more than either of them bargained for when they first meet. Gorgeous black and white cinematography and art driection throughout this 1970s charmer!
