LITTLE FUGITIVE

(1953) Brooklynite Richie Andrusco’s on the run from the cops after the accidental shooting of his big brother – only trouble is, Richie’s only seven, the “shooting” was just a dumb ketchup-splashed gag by his brother and cronies, and Mom won’t be back from Grandma’s till the next day. But with six bucks in his pocket and all of Coney Island for a hide-out, how tough can things be? A perfect time capsule of Coney in the waning years of its heyday.  Approx. 80 min. 35mm.
