A boy living in poverty in rural America ventures out into New York City and faces unforeseen obstacles
23 May 2005 | by dave-1672See all my reviews

A story of a boy living in extreme poverty somewhere in rural America.

He is forced to leave home by his Father for economical reasons (namely, they can no longer afford to house or feed him).

Hitching a ride to New York City, he is then faced with unforeseen obstacles, including rivals his own age.

After his encounter with the harsh reality of the city, he is befriended by a "lady of the night" (played by Lee Grant) who protects him, and cares for him.

From the perspective of a young boy (as I was when I saw this movie), the notion of being kicked-out of one's home at a young age, and having to fend for one's self is nothing less than horrific.

At the time I saw this film, I didn't think that the title was a particularly good fit, nor did others who saw it with me.

Unaware of its other title "Pie in the Sky" at the time, I now believe in retrospect that it may have done better theatrically had it been released/distributed as such.

A sleeper, and an obscure cult-classic to be, I saw this film in 1966 when it was "double-billed" with another (then current) film.

I give it a modest rating, as I saw it only once. It did undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on me.

Of the many, many obscure films now available, I have yet to see this under-rated film available in video.
