Our friends at See It On 16mm bring us back to the days of conning and swindling. It’s Peter Bogdanovich’s 1973 masterpiece, Paper Moon, celebrating its 50th anniversary on a beautiful 16mm film print!
During the Great Depression, a con man (Ryan O’Neal) finds himself saddled with a young girl (Tatum O’Neal)—who may or may not be his daughter—and the two forge an unlikely partnership as they get by on extremely varying degrees of success.
Based on the novel Addie Pray by Joe David Brown, Paper Moon is a riotously entertaining and deeply bittersweet look into a long-forgone period.
Paper Moon screens Saturday, September 2nd.
