SAVANNAH SMILES REVIEWED
“Savannah Smiles” is one of those films that seemed to thrive on cable in the 1980. It’s weird how these indie produced kid movies are just unknown by large sections of the movie-going public. For those that don’t know, the film is about a little girl who gets left alone by her parents that are running for public office. Tired of being ignored, she stows away in the back of a stolen vehicle. That’s when she meets the two goofy thieves who decide to take her under their wing. A cadre of character actors fight to get the little girl back, but she doesn’t want to come home.
The more you watch Savannah Smiles, the sadder it becomes to realize that Bridgette Andersen is no longer with us. While she had her problems later in life, I 100% believe she died from an accident rather than something on purpose. Hell, hopefully MVD can find some her other films to add to the collection. It’s a crying shame how many kid actors from this period never got to capitalize on their raw ability.
