“Savannah Smiles is, hands down, one of the best family films of all time.” – DVDTalk

Now, in a brand new (2018) 2K transfer struck from a rare 35mm print, Savannah Smiles comes to life again for an entirely new set of generations!

The story remains the same (of course)…

Two crooks on the run are about to have their hearts stolen by a six-year-old girl.

Savannah Driscoll (Bridgette Andersen), the young daughter of a politician, runs away after being neglected by her busy parents. She hides in the car of Alvie and Boots, two not-so-bright crooks who are slowly converted into parent figures to her. A surprising bond of love and redirection forms among the trio as the police close down on the supposed kidnappers.

Featuring Bridgette Andersen, Donovan Scott, Mark Miller, Michael Parks, Peter Graves, Pat Morita, Fran Ryan.
