Peter Bogdanovich's 1973 movie "Paper Moon" was based on Joe David Brown's Depression Era novel "Addie Pray". Bogdanovich disliked the book title and on seeing sheet music to "It's Only A Paper Moon" by Harold Arlen from 1933 - decided to retitle the film and even add a scene where a Paper Moon is including (the carnival set).

Set in 1935 – it's essentially a Depression Era road movie where Tatum O'Neal (then only 10 years old) plays "Addie" Loggins/Pray - while her very famous dad Ryan (hot from "Love Story" and "What's Up Doc?") plays the bible-selling hustler Moses "Pray" who takes on this mouthy but winning orphan after her hooker mum has passed away.

Relocating the story from the South to the Mid West (the flat treeless landscape of Kansas was used for filming) and featuring a wonderfully evocative Soundtrack of Dust Bowl Ballads and Chorus Songs - the movie's father/daughter relationship and old-timey nostalgia appeal tapped into "The Sting" audience and rewarded the irrepressible Tatum O’Neal with an Oscar nomination for best Supporting Role (the youngest actress to ever receive such an accolade - which she won). It also received three other nominations - Madeline Khan as best Supporting Actress, Best adapted screenplay by Alvin Sargent and Best Sound. The soundtrack even troubled the lower regions of the American charts in August 1973 and has become a celebrated piece ever since (see my review for the 2009 Cherry Red/El Records Expanded CD which adds on 11 Bonus Tracks). Which brings us to the BLU RAY reissue...

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.

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

This is a touching and superb film that does not patronise the viewer. The comedy arises from the interplay of the characters rather than being forced upon them by a writer desperate for 'gags'. Things just 'happen' and the viewer interprets these events as indicating how the characters are evolving - having said the film does not patronise the viewer I really don't want to point out these instances.

In addition to these subtleties there are two set-pieces (which are also subtle but a bit more direct) that both involve Tatum O'Neill. In one silent scene she stands before the mirror putting on make-up, and the changing expressions on her face are just beautiful and touching. In another scene, Madeline Kahn begins by haranguing and finally begging Tatum to allow her to continue having an affair with her father. The scene does not 'play to the gallery' it unfolds naturally and it is funny and then very sad. - Yes, the child that Tatum plays is very knowing about adult matters which is evidence of the film having been made in a different era.

The image of the 'video box' that is on the Amazon page misrepresents the film as it makes Tatum look like a conventional slightly 'cute' child actress. She is anything but, her character and her performance are nuanced and it is a wonder she did not win the Academy Award for best actress rather than supporting actress.

There is a slight glitch in the film (at least over the internet through streaming video) but this appears to be damage in the original, a few seconds of film are lost but it is not that significant.

Peter Bogdanovich directed the film and he has made other fine films but none so fine as 'Paper Moon'.

PAPER MOON [1973 / 2015] [Masters of Cinema] [Blu-ray + DVD] Tatum O'Neal Makes A Sensational Screen Debut! A Charming Mixture of Hawksian Comedy and Fordian Lyricism!

Continuing a run of Seventies smash-hits for director Peter Bogdanovich after the enormous success of his ‘The Last Picture Show’ and ‘What’s Up, Doc?’ and ‘PAPER MOON’ saw the filmmaker sustaining his collaboration with actor Ryan O’Neal, and introduced the world to the precocious talent of the future ‘Barry Lyndon’ star's daughter Tatum O’Neal, then 10 years of age, who for her performance was the youngest ever actress to be awarded an Academy Awards® for Best Supporting Actress.

After meeting a newly orphaned girl named Addie Loggins [Tatum O’Neal], con man Moses Pray [Ryan O’Neal), who may or may not be Addie s father, is enlisted to deliver the newly orphaned Addie to her aunt in Missouri. Shortly after however, the two realise that together they make an efficient scam-artist duo. Adventure ensues as the pair blaze through the American Midwest, stealing, swindling, and selling the moon...

With its stunning black-and-white cinematography shot by the great László Kovács and its superb evocation of Depression-era locales, Paper Moon endures as one of the key American comedies of the 1970s. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film in its UK home viewing premiere in a new Dual-Format edition.

FILM FACT: Awards and Nominations: 1973 Academy Awards®: Win: Best Supporting Actress for Tatum O'Neal. Nominated: Best Supporting Actress for Madeline Kahn. Nominated: Best Sound for Richard Portman and Les Fresholtz. Nominated: Best Adapted Screenplay for Alvin Sargent.
