Sullivan's Travels PG rating

Preston Sturges' comic masterpiece about a filmmaker who decides to experience life as a tramp in order to help write his socially significant screenplay.

Comedy 1941 91 mins

Director: Preston Sturges



Sturges achieves the perfect balance between playful and serious in his celebrated masterwork about a comedy film director (Joel McCrea) who goes on the road in search of more socially significant material for his next film, O Brother, Where Are Thou? (A title famously purloined by the Coen brothers.)

McCrea is brilliant as the idealistic filmmaker and Veronica Lake is effervescent as the would-be actress who tags along.
