Considered one of the best movies about making movies, Sullivan's Travels is a comedic satire about a director of Hollywood comedies, John Sullivan (Joel McCrea), who decides to go on the road as a vagabond in an attempt at self-discovery so he can tell stories about the problems confronting the average man. As he travels across America, he meets a girl (Veronica Lake), who can see right through him, but still joins him on the road. Sturges aptly shifts this comedic road movie and turns it into exactly the type of serious movie John Sullivan was hoping to make—exposing the harsh realities of the time and questioning whether there is a place for comedy in troubled times. Contains mature content.
