5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST 'Period Movie' EVER, Probably ! 16 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is so good, you'll watch over and over. I found myself focusing on each character in turn with every repeat viewing. And then when I was through with the characters, this same obsession was directed at studying the settings, the cars, the wardrobe, the roads and streets, the buildings, and even the skies in this black&white-shot epic. And then came the charming 1930s music!

Yes, this is a very special film. The plot takes the viewer back to 'depression America', hooking you from start to finish, with the pause button remaining untouched throughout. Father and daughter Ryan and Tatum O'Neal act out mega powerful and highly believable roles in tremendously demanding and emotional scenes as a team of well-meaning con artists. Tatum O'Neal, who went on to grow up and get married to and divorced from tennis superstar John McEnroe, gives the best child-actor performance I have ever seen.

Nothing like it. Worth every second and every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over the Moon! 4 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
How can you resist the charm, humour, warmth and cheek of this rare gem?
Ryan O'Neal is a loveable rogue, swindling his way across Middle America in the Depression, aided and abetted by his accomplice 'daughter' - an oscar-winning performance from Tatum o'Neal. Their relationship and bantering form the backbone to the story which keeps you entertained from beginning to end.Tatum has more spark and personality than any child you ever met!

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece 12 Feb 2004
By David
Format:DVD
I watched this film origionally without knowing anything about it and was blown away! It has the incredible actress (Tatum) in the daughter of the lead actor (ryan o'neil). You would be mistaken of her age by the quality of her performance for which she became the youngest oscar winner, at the age of 10.
Set in depression hit 1930 mid-west america, it is a tale about a con-artist and an orphan who turns out to better at it than him. Team up to fund a journey and an improved lifestyle. A tale Brimming with wit, a fullfilling watch that stays with you.
Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-see gem of a film. 1 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Depression America, mid-west. A small time conman delivers the ten-year-old daughter he's never met to her aunt in another state. Mishaps and adventures along the way, with suspicion and anger turning to genuine respect and mutual understanding.

A cracker of a film that no-one seems to have heard of. Tatum and Ryan O'Neal banter like you've never seen (check out the five minute continuous take in the car) and a brilliant turn from Madeleine Khan as 'Miss Trixie Delight'. Sumptious Black-and-white photography, and an attention to detail of the tired, worn and cashstrapped mid-west that is quite delightful. Tatum got the oscar for her performance as Addie Loggins, and deservedly so.

This still works great 40 years later. Shot in gorgeous black and white, it's a film full of smiles and laughs,
a lot of heart, but very little sticky sweetness.

A low level grifter (Ryan O'Neal) gets stuck with taking a tough as nails orphaned 9 year old (O'Neal's real '
life daughter Tatum, in an astonishing performance for a kid that age - she really deserved the Oscar she
won) home to relatives. Along the way they get into all sorts of misadventures, and meet numerous characters,
including a wonderfully funny Madeline Kahn as an exotic dancer named "Trixie Delight", and John Hillerman
doing his usual excellent low key work in a double role as a bootlegger and his sheriff brother.

Bogdanovich gets to the essence of what was best about 30s comedies, without being a slave to it. He moves
the camera, plays scenes in very long single takes, and isn't afraid to mix the best of more modern film making
along with the best of the old.

One of those comedies you can watch over and over again.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Utterly delightful. Father and daughter Ryan and Tatum O'Neil, under Peter Bogdanovich's superlative direction, produce one of the most affectingly warm and cunningly sly movies of the 1970s. Set in depression era America and beautifully photographed in pristine monochrome by Laszlo Kovacs, it's a period piece that refuses to get old, such is the deft imagery and sharpness of the screenplay.

Story essentially comes down to conman Moses Pray (R. O'Neil) hooking up with orphan Addie Loggins (T. O'Neil), who may or may not be his actual daughter. Addie proves to be a precocious live wire, not easily fooled and she smokes, cusses and is more than capable of pulling a con herself. After initial indignation, Moses comes to court Addie's strengths and they form a dynamic partnership as they travel through Kansas, pulling cons left right and centre and piling the money up. But can it last forever?

The chemistry between father and daughter is obviously set in stone, with young Tatum an absolute revelation. The screenplay gives them both ample opportunities to enchant and amuse the viewer as they get up to all sorts of tricks and scrapes. Yet there's always that feeling hanging in the dusty air that something has to give, that we are treading firmly in bittersweet territory, the crafty couple having earned our complete investment in their well being keeping us concerned even as we laugh out loud.

Delightful. 9/10
