Sullivan's Travel
2011
Description
Director: Preston Sturges
The film is a satire of the conflict between art and commerce as well as the gap betweenthe privileged and the impoverished. It tells of the 'mission' of 'Sully' (Joel McCrea), a big-shot Hollywood director of lightweight comedies to experience suffering in the world before
producing his next about the common man. After some failed attempts dressed as a hobo and companionship on the road with an aspiring blonde actress simply called The Girl (Veronica
Lake) and wearing boy's clothes, he succeeds in losing his freedom, identity and name, health, pride and money. A classic comedy of the depression era, this is a must for Preston Sturges fans.

    About Director:- Considered the most prominent director in the genre of screwball comedy, Preston Sturges was one of the first writers to direct his own script. The success of his films with experimental narrative set the precedent for other writers to become directors. Four of his films – The Lady Eve, Sullivan's Travels, The Palm Beach Story and The Miracle of Morgan's Creek – were chosen by the American Film Institute among the 100 funniest American films.
