Lovers and Lollipops / Weddings and Babies

1956 NR

This double feature of work from writer-director Morris Engel forms a type of "New York Trilogy" when considered alongside his only other film, the influential Little Fugitive (1953). In Lovers and Lollipops (1956), a mother (Ruth Orkin) must look to her daughter for permission to marry. Then, in Weddings and Babies (1958), a restless photographer (John Mhyers) longs to do something more important than take pictures of other people's lives.
