A living, breathing, Fudgsicle-sticky document of New York City in the 1950s, this wistful, sweet-spirited independent drama about a 7-year-old on his own at Coney Island managed to simultaneously influence the French New Wave, American cinema verite, and just about every independent production for decades to come.

A Cinema Conservancy release. Preserved by the Museum of Modern Art with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Film Foundation, and the Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Fund.

Little Fugitive is screening as part of Morris Engel 100.
