Paper Moon (1973)


Ryan O’Neal plays a bible-selling conman in depression-era Kansas, who falls in with a sassy, cigarette-smoking little girl (O’Neal’s daughter, Tatum) who proves to be as sharp, if not sharper, than he is.

Inevitably, Tatum O’Neal steals the show as the self-possessed nine-year-old who succumbs to childish jealousy when grown-up girl Madeline Kahn comes along for the ride.
