Saturday 1 - 2:35pm in Auditorium 4
Director: Preston Sturges
With Introduction by Wayne White
Tired of churning out lightweight comedies, Hollywood director John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) decides to make O Brother, Where Art Thou?, a serious, socially responsible film about human suffering. After his producers point out that he knows nothing of hardship, Sullivan, disguised as a hobo, hits the road. En route to enlightenment, he encounters a lovely but no-nonsense young woman (Veronica Lake)—and more trouble than he ever dreamed of. This comic masterpiece by director Preston Sturges is among the finest Hollywood satires, and a high-water mark in the career of one of the industry’s most revered funnymen.
