When I was a kid in the early 1980s, HBO repeated the same five movies over and over again and Savannah Smiles was one of them. The film introduced us to the most adorable little blond child, Bridgette Andersen as the precocious Savannah who runs away from her overly occupied, rich parents and stumbles on two idiotic petty criminals.

I'm sure NOBODY remembers this flick, but I do and I loved it. Here's a sweet scene from Savannah Smiles I never quite understood, but thought was cute. Hey, I was like 11, what do you expect. I'm sad to discover that the young actress Bridgette Andersen (who also appeared in many TV shows including Golden Girls) died of a drug overdose.
