Trailer Park: Jimmy the Kid

Here's the trailer for the 1982 film Jimmy the Kid, based on the novel by Donald Westlake, and starring Gary Coleman as Jimmy and Paul Le Mat as John Dortmunder.

The book is really good and really funny. Don't hold the movie--which we have to concede is virtually unwatchable, and certainly Westlake thought so--against the novel.

But if you're so inclined, good look tracking this one down. A cursory search of Amazon indicates this hasn't even made it to DVD yet.

You can learn more about the film on its IMDB page and Wikipedia entry
