Classic Film: "Sullivan's Travels," part of the Headed to the Movies! film series
(1941, 90 minutes, black & white) Directed by Preston Sturges. Tired of churning out fluffy comedies, Hollywood director John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) decides to write a serious, socially responsible film about human suffering. When his producers point out that he knows nothing of trouble or poverty, he hits the road as a hobo. Joined by a down-on-her-luck aspiring actress (Veronica Lake), the results are hardly the kind of hardship he had in mind. But when the "experiment" seems to be over, Sullivan falls into more trouble than he ever dreamed of...
