Raising Arizona (1987)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable movie. Perennial convenience store robber Herbert I. McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) decides to change his life around on his most recent release from jail and proposes to police photographer Edwina (Holly Hunter). They want to start a family, but soon learn that she is incapable of getting pregnant. After being rejected by several adoption agencies, they decide their only chance of raising a child is to steal one of the Arizona family’s quintuplet sons.

Several babies were auditioned for the role until choosing T.J. Kuhn; they wanted a baby that could not yet walk.
