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.
