  What Is a Little Boy?
Boys are found everywhere -- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to.
A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.
A boy is a composite -- he has the appetite of a horse, the digestion of a sword swallower, the energy of an atom bomb, the curiosity of a cat, the lungs of a dictator, the shyness of a violet and when he makes something, he has five thumbs on each hand.

 A-Bomb WWW Museum ~ June,1995
Little Boy was dropped from the Enola Gay, one of the B-29 bombers that flew over Hiroshima on that day.
The people who saw the Little Boy often say "We saw another sun in the sky when it exploded." The heat and the light generated by the Little Boy were far stronger than bombs which they had seen before.
Though the amount of energy generated by the bomb dropped to Nagasaki was significantly larger than that of the Little Boy, the damage given to the city was slighter than that given to Hiroshima due to the geographic structure of the city.

 TheMovieBoy Review: Little Boy Blue (1998)
"Little Boy Blue," is like one of those old southern gothic mysteries from the '50's, where the characters are shrouded in uncertainty, where the plot twists come at a rapid pace, but where the story is pretty juvenile and silly, except to the people unlucky enough to be in the film.
"Little Boy Blue," is an independent film that had been floating around at film festivals prior to its limited theatrical release this Spring.
"Little Boy Blue," does not work as a thriller, as a "slice-of-life" drama, as a mystery, or as an old-fashioned 50's movie.
