Eureka Entertainment to release PAPER MOON

Eureka Entertainment to release PAPER MOON, the 1973 American comedy-drama starring Ryan and Tatum O’Neal, on Blu-ray in a Dual Format edition as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on 18 May 2015.

[For immediate release] Eureka! Entertainment have announced the release of PAPER MOON, one of the biggest successes in the career of Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show, What’s Up, Doc?, Mask) starring Ryan O’Neal (Love Story, Barry Lyndon) and his daughter Tatum O’Neal, the youngest ever Academy Award recipient for her performance in the film. Shot with stunning monochromatic film, the release will include a slew of extras and a 36-page booklet.  Available in a Dual Format edition as part of Eureka’s award winning The Masters of Cinema Series, from 18 May 2015.


Continuing a run of Seventies smash-hits for director Peter Bogdanovich after the enormous success of his The Last Picture Show and What’s Up, Doc?, Paper Moon saw the filmmaker sustaining his collaboration with actor Ryan O’Neal, and introduced the world to the precocious talent of the future Barry Lyndon star's daughter Tatum, then 10, who for her performance was the youngest-ever actress to be awarded an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. 

After meeting a newly orphaned girl named Addie Loggins (Tatum O’Neal), con man Moses Pray (Ryan O’Neal), who may or may not be Addie’s father, is enlisted to deliver the newly orphaned Addie to her aunt in Missouri. Shortly after however, the two realise that together they make an efficient scam-artist duo. Adventure ensues as the pair blaze through the American Midwest, stealing, swindling, and selling the moon…

With its stunning black-and-white cinematography shot by the great László Kovács and its superb evocation of Depression-era locales, Paper Moon endures as one of the key American comedies of the 1970s. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film in its UK home viewing premiere in a new Dual-Format edition.
