Francois Truffaut said “Our New Wave would never have come into being, if it hadn’t been for the young American, Morris Engel who showed us the way with his production, Little Fugitive.”

Little Fugitive is the story of a seven-year old boy named Joey (Richie Andrusco) who runs away to Coney Island after being tricked into thinking he’s killed his older brother Lennie (Rickie Brewster).
