Coney Vid: "Little Fugitive" 2006 Remake Trailer

Though this remake of the critically aclaimed orginal 1953 black and white film "The Little Fugitive" by Ruth Orkin and Morris Engel - this Joanna Lipper's 2006 remake was made in Coney Island it was not submitted and/or presented at the Coney Island Film Festival. The original version was nominated for an academy award for best writing. The remake did not make much noise.

It's playing at Coney Island Museum in two weeks with a discussion panel afterwards. Look at "film programs".
