LITTLE FUGITIVE.

DVD_LittleFugitive[DVD: Keno International Corp. – 1953 – 80 mins]. This charming fable poetically captures the joys and wonders of childhood. When a seven-year-old boy is tricked into believing he killed his older brother, he gathers his meagre possessions and flees to New York’s nether wonderland: Coney Island. Upon and beneath the crowded boardwalk, Joey experiences a day and night filled with adventures and mysteries. This edition of Little Fugitive is the 80-minute version, and includes 5 minutes of extra footage not seen in the film’s original 1953 theatrical release. ANDY SHINE SAYS: Coney Island features prominently from 20 minutes on. Extras include the theatrical trailer and a feature-length audio commentary by Morris Engel. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
