Winner of the Venice Film Festival’s Silver Lion in 1953, LITTLE FUGITIVE is one of the great, unknown American films of the 20th Century. Ground breaking in its use of location shooting with non-professional actors, the film tells the story of Joey Norton (Richie Andrusco), a seven year old boy who is tricked into believing he has killed his older brother Lennie (Richard Brewster). Afraid of going to prison, the boy flees his home and heads to Coney Island, spending the day wandering the various delights of the thriving amusement park. But can Lennie find his brother and save the day? An Artists Public Domain/Cinema Conservancy Release.
