Sullivan's Travels


Sullivan's Travels

Written and directed by Preston Sturges, Sullivan's Travels is one of the greatest Hollywood satires ever made. John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) is an idealist filmmaker who decides to make a serious, socially responsible movie instead of his typical comedic fare. Realizing that he cannot accurately direct a screen tragedy unless he lived it first, he decides to hit the road disguised as a hobo. Along the way, he meets a beautiful yet cynical wanderer (Veronica Lake) and finds himself in more trouble than he ever imagined. Featuring a timeless message that continues to resonate with audiences today, this heartwarming masterpiece illustrates the importance of laughter in the world.
