Paper Moon is a 1973 Paramount comedy-drama, based on the novel Addie Pray by Joe David Brown, directed by Peter Bogdonovich, and starring the father and daughter team of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal.

During The Great Depression Moses Pray, a Con Man specializing in selling Bibles From the Dead, is tasked with delivering a recently orphaned 9-year-old girl Addie to her aunt. Despite vehemently denying that Addie is his daughter (which she likely is, considering Moses knew her "wild" mother well), he takes a liking to a her - even more so when he realizes his grifting looks more legit with a child by his side.

The film was nominated for Academy Awards in four categories: Best Screenplay Adaptation, Best Sound, and two nominations for Best Supporting Actress -- Madeline Kahn and Tatum O'Neal herself. Tatum won, making her the youngest actor to win a competitive Oscar (she was 10).
