Great Movies of Summer: Little Fugitive [1953]

Photographer Morris Engel's classic about a little boy lost in Coney Island is hard to believe as a fiction, it's so candidly shot (with a hand-held 35mm camera).  The crowded beach scenes, steep shadows & sunlit glare, and ambient boardwalk sounds put us so square in the middle of the action you'll want to shake the sand from your shoes.
