Little Fugitive

 (1953)

Little Fugitive Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

When a seven-year-old boy (Richie Andrusco) is tricked into believing he killed his older brother, he gathers his meager possessions and flees to New York's nether wonderland: Coney Island. Upon and beneath the crowded boardwalk, Joey experiences a day and a night filled with adventures and mysteries, resulting in a film that's spontaneous and delightful.

For more about Little Fugitive and the Little Fugitive Blu-ray release, see Little Fugitive Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Richie Andrusco
Director: Morris Engel

Little Fugitive Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mastered from a 35mm print preserved by the Museum of Modern Art—with assistance from The Film Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, and the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation—Little Fugitive's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer looks wonderful, providing you don't expect an absolutely pristine image. Like a lot of Kino-Lorber titles, the film is essentially presented "as-is," so you will notice some age-related damage, including black and white specks, occasional hairs stuck at the edge of the frame, and brief vertical scratches. None of this is particularly distracting, but you can imagine how breathtaking the film would look if it had been given the sort of frame-by-frame restoration usually seen on Criterion or big studio releases. Otherwise, Little Fugitive is a real pleasure to watch here. On the flip-side of Kino's hands-off approach, no obvious edge enhancement or grain-erasing DNR has been applied, so the image looks natural and clearly filmic, preserving Morris Engel's striking photojournalistic cinematography. Clarity-wise, the picture looks to be as resolved as is possible given the source materials, and the black and white contrast balance is excellent, with deep blacks and highlights that are crisp but never overblown.


Little Fugitive Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like the picture quality, the uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track Kino offers us here has its age/budget-related quirks—some light crackling, a low- level tape hiss—but the mix is never abrasive, and always listenable. Although Little Fugitive was shot silently—Engel wouldn't develop the tech to shoot portable sync-sound until his 1960 feature Weddings and Babies—the after-the-fact dubbing of the effects, ambience, and voices is actually quite good, with only a few moments of he's clearly not saying that there disjointedness. Everything sounds realistic—the carnival clamor, the pouring rain, even footsteps—and the aw-shucks Brooklyn dialogue is always easy to understand. (Which is good, because Kino has once again neglected to include any subtitle options.) The film's aural highlight, though, is the lonesome harmonica score that accompanies little Joey's big journey.
