Paper Moon aired from September 1974 until January 1975 on ABC.


This was a gentile comedy about an itinerate Bible salesman/con artist and his precocious 11-year-old daughter, traveling across Kansas during the Depression years. If Moze ( Christopher Connelly) and his daughter Addie ( Jodie Foster) never had much money, it wasn't for lack of trying every fast-buck scheme in the book. Though they just " got by," and were often only one step ahead of the law , they at least had each other. Much period flavor was featured in this series, including an authenic 1933 theme song. The series was filmed on location in Kansas.


Based on the 1973 movie starring Ryan and Tatum O'Neal, which had in turn been taken from the novel, Addie Pray by Joe David Brown.



A Review from Time Magazine


Monday, Nov. 11, 1974


The car in Paper Moon (ABC, Thursday, 8:30 p.m. E.S.T.) is cute rather than awesome, as befits what is intended to be a comedy. An ever-open convertible is often glimpsed gleaming invitingly in the ceaselessly shining sun. The car is a symbol of the footloose lifestyle Moze and Addie Pray (Christopher Connelly and Jodie Foster) have chosen as the best way for con man and girl to survive the Depression '30s. It is, apparently, a rolling Camelot. The pair have yet to encounter any bad weather, let alone any bad vibes on ABC the roads they (theoretically) share with the dispossessed multitudes inscribed on our consciousness by the fiction and photography of the period. Documentary verisimilitude is too much to ask of a sitcom, but surely there might be some semblance of the vulgar energy that animated the movie from which the show is derived not to mention Joe David Brown's fine novel.


As it now stands, Paper Moon is the most spiritless comedy regardless of setting on the tube.
