Drink your Nehi and eat your Coney Island!

I watched this movie for the first time in at least five years. Paper Moon came out in 1973, but the whole film is done in black and white to give off the Depression Era vibe of the 1930's setting.

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal play the roles of con man and orphan, selling bibles to recent widows and claiming that the husbands ordered the bibles as gifts for the wives just before they died. In this clip, Moses is about to send Addie off to live with her aunt in St. Joseph, but Moses has "her $200."
