Little Fugitive - An Original Special

In 1953 this little independently made film surprisingly found its way onto commercial cinema screens across the land. Its big drawcard was remarkable cinematography by first-time moviemakers, Ray Ashley, Morris Engel, and Ruth Orkin. Sharing the writing, direction, photography, and editing this group of talented folk brought life to a raw but warm story of childhood that resonated with audiences the world over. A simple story of two brothers after one runs away following a practical joke that goes badly wrong - featuring non-professional cast members and using a 35mm camera that had been modified, allowing it to be used much like a steady-cam unit would be today. Its filmed mostly at Coney Island and around Brooklyn. So fresh and inventive was the outcome - in the years that followed, mainstream moviemakers the world over adopted the techniques into their works, starting several new trends in filmmaking. The image and sound remain effective to this day and the newly re-masted Kino Lobar DVD has breathed new life into this ground-breaking little picture. Beware of the disappointing color re-make.
