On TCM 9/1/16- Sullivan’s Travels (1942) – A movie from the heart not to be missed by great writer/director Preston Sturges perfectly cast with Joel McCrea as sincere filmmaker John L. Sullivan who goes on the road alone as a hobo (“Without friends, without credit, without checkbook, without name.”) to find out about the human condition and then make a picture about it. Veronica Lake plays “the girl” that per Sullivan: “There’s always a girl in the picture. What’s the matter, don’t you go to the movies?”
