Synopsis

Lovers and Lollipops
Lovers and Lollipops is a reverse "generation gap" quickie with a dash of charm to help it go down. Ruth Orkin plays an attractive widow with a headstrong daughter (Lori March). Ruth wants to marry a go-getting businessman, played by Gerald S. O'Loughlin. March won't hear of it, and digs in her heels at the prospect of momma taking the vows. Filmed in New York, Lovers and Lollipops is obvious but amiable stuff; its utter lack of star names doomed it to an early TV berth. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Little Fugitive
A lyrical serio-comedy from the writing/directing team of Ray Ashley, Morris Engel and Ruth Orkin, The Little Fugitive stars young Richie Andrusco as Joey Norton, a seven-year-old Brooklynite left in the care of his 12-year-old brother Lennie (Ricky Brewster). Finding the boy to be a constant annoyance, Lennie and his friends devise a plan to make Joey mistakenly believe that he has killed his brother; the prank is successful, and a frightened Joey flees for the fantasy-world refuge of Coney Island. A lost classic waiting to be rediscovered, The Little Fugitive was highly acclaimed upon its initial release, scoring an Oscar nomination for "Best Screenplay" as well as sharing a Silver Lion award at the 1953 Venice Film Festival alongside such legendary fare as Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu Monogatari. Shot on an extremely low budget, the film's innovative use of hand-held cameras and staccato editing techniques establish a rough-and-tumble, documentary-like edge perfectly attuned to its incisive, realistic treatment of childhood wonderment and fear. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Morris Engel: The Independent
Weddings and Babies
Weddings and Babies is an independent, location-filmed romance set amongst the denizens of the Manhattan "glamour" industry. Viveca Lindfors stars as a model who yearns for more in life than just an hour's shoot. John Myhers costars as a photographer who likewise feels unfulfilled (Sidebar: director Morris Engel had once been a still photographer). It's nice to hear New Yorkers talking and acting like real people instead of characters in a woman's magazine; this sentiment was shared at the Cannes Film Festival, where the film was honored with the Critics Prize. Incidentally, the "baby" in Weddings and Babies is future actor Kristoffer Tabori, the real-life son of Viveca Lindfors. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
