“In 1973’s Depression-set comedy, Tatum O’Neal gives a legendary performance as 9-year-old Addie Loggins, who may or may not be the daughter of con man Moses Pray, played by Tatum’s real-life father, Ryan O’Neal. Addie and Moze join forces and scam their way across America, on a road trip full of hillbillies, bootleggers, gold-diggers, and carnival barkers.” – Alena Smith
