Overview

Peter Bogdanovich's award-winning Paper Moon comes to DVD with a fabulous widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Laszlo Kovacs' gorgeous black-and-white photography is presented beautifully. The film has never looked better on home video. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. There are neither subtitles nor closed captions on this release. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Bogdanovich. He discusses the making of the film, the allusions to other films he was making throughout the movie, and he explains in layman's terms how the exquisite look of the film was achieved. Three featurettes offer much of the same information as the commentary track, but the deleted scenes that appear during those featurettes are very entertaining. Considering the inexpensive list price of the disc, this Paramount offering is a true value.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Paper Moon was Peter Bogdanovich's third straight commercial and critical success in the early Seventies, and it was in many ways a combination of the first two. It had the black-and-white retro feel of his John Ford ode, The Last Picture Show, along with some of the energetic comedy of his Howard Hawks ode, What's Up Doc?. In fact, Paper Moon owes a great deal to Hawks. If the striking cinematography is all Ford, the movie has the same straight-faced folly of Hawks' best comedies (Twentieth Century, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday), and it also manages a touch of the rueful shifts of tone that characterized Hawks movies. The deadpan acting only adds to the enjoyment. Ryan O'Neal, as a Bible selling con-man, was never more likable, and Madeline Kahn also reached a career highpoint, nominated for an Oscar as a "dancer" named Trixie Delight. But the revelation was Ryan's real-life daughter Tatum O'Neal, who won an Academy Award in her first screen appearance. Her career never again reached such heights. Pity the same can be said for Bogdanovich, who also never came close to equaling his initial successes.

    When I first saw, "Paper Moon,"to be honest with you,I didn't understand the whole story to it.All I knew was that it had a bit of a mystery to it,but also adventure.Ryan O'Neal and daughter,Tatum make such a great father/daughter team.It's so sad that their relationship,in real life,didn't turn out for the best.It may not sound like a lot,but Tatum is basically a spliting image of Ryan,in "Paper Moon."They look so much alike!

    Great Cinema!

    This is one of the best films ever made. Even though it does not follow the book, ''Addie Pray'' by Joe David Brown, on which it is based, it is still a great movie. Tatum O'Neil is excellent as Addie and this is, perhaps, Madeline Kahn's finest effort. The choice to film it in black and white adds to the historical richness of the story and suits the mood of the time. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves great story telling.
