Ryan O’Neal teams up with his daughter Tatum in this bright, warm, and funny period film for which Tatum won an Oscar for her first film role, making her the youngest actress to ever receive this honor. O’Neal plays the smooth-talking con man Moses Pray, driving through depression-era Kansas with a carload of deluxe bibles, a gold tooth behind a convincing smile, and a list of newly widowed prospects for his line. Addie (Tatum O’Neal) is a cigarette-smoking, nine-year-old orphan who hooks up with Moses and manages to show the master con man a trick or two. Madeline Kahn also joins the team as the funny, neurotic Trixie Delight. Winner of Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Tatum O'Neal) and nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Madeline Kahn) and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Academy Awards. Winner of Most Promising Newcomer - Female (Tatum O'Neal) and nominated for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical and Best Director - Motion Picture at the Golden Globes. "It's everything a road picture is supposed to be, a life-changing personal journey, a quest, ... and a hoot." - Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
