International Buffet BENEFIT for KFAI Radio
hosted by KFAI's Catalyst host Lydia Howell
Watch the 1941 satire Sullivan's Travels, directed by the legendary Preston Sturges. A rich Hollywood director (Joel McCrea) who has made his wealth on popular but shallow comedies, decides that in the midst of the Great Depression, his next film is to be a great human drama entitled Oh, Brother Where Art Thou, Now? Going on the road as a penniless hobo, his attempts to research poverty have comic and moving results.
Behind the scenes, his business associates try to protect him from any hardship. An out-of-work actress (Veronica Lake) joins him in his travels and gives the director a reality-check. Moments of real drama are punctuated with plenty of laughs. This classic is perfect entertainment with plenty of substance, timeless art reflecting our own contemporary hard times.
