How obscure can we really go? How about a 1982 kids film about a precocious little rich girl who's inadvertently kidnapped by a pair of bumbling convicts? Savannah Smiles, anyone? No? The movie's up on You Tube for your viewing...pleasure? For this episode, we even have a very special guest who just so happens to be a blood relative...Justin's mom. So his movie obsession can be partly attributed to her. We all three discuss the reason why this peculiar film was chosen, our varying love for Alvie and Boots, runaway kids in the movie and in real life, throwing melons at convenience store owners, Bridgette Andersen's performance and sad death, lots of love for Pat Morita and Peter Graves, the rousing soundtrack and more. This podcast is rated PG! Keepin' it clean, folks.

Melanie, interesting I ENJOYED LISTENING, YOU dont have southern accent as bad as Faith and I, ITS ALL GOOD!
SAVANNAH SMILES is definitely a movie I have seen at least 5 times (most recently about 2 years ago).

I watched the trailer for RED STATE just a few minutes ago, and thought, “Hey, that pastor guy looks familiar.”
He was the lieutenant in SAVANNAH SMILES. Ha.
So, then I went back to the cast list and noticed that Alvie actually wrote the screenplay and produced the movie, too. And, he’s Penelope Ann Miller’s dad (he has two other daughters, one named Savannah).
Mark Miller needs a Tarantino career rebirth! “Smile, Savannaaaah, just one more time for meeeee….”
