Peter Bogdanovich United States, 1973

Ghostman's rating of the film Paper Moon

Paper Moon is one of Bogdanovich's best films, one made at the peak of his career. Shot in beautiful B&W, it's about a self-absorbed con man who gets stuck with a little girl who may or may not be his daughter as they travel the American South in the 1930s. Starring Ryan & Tatum O'Neal, the father & daughter duo both deliver career best performances here. It's also a shame Tatum didn't get the career she deserved.
