Thanks to a new wide-screen transfer, the O’Neals’ (Ryan and Tatum) beguiling father-daughter act now plays out against stunning dust-bowl tableaux instead of cropped landscapes. The resultant sweep of the Depression-era visuals goes a long way toward compensating for O’Neal senior’s hopelessly flat line readings. But a feel for certain historical details seems to have completely eluded director-producer Peter Bogdanovich in his bonus introductory remarks: He recalls his early-’70s glory days without once mentioning any of the collaborators who helped make Paper Moon so moodily effective. B+
