msmichel's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

Essential cinema. Masterful satirical achievement that concerns a filmmaker tired of making 'fluff' who sets to the road as a tramp to discover truth, hunger and pain to better make an 'important' film. The truth he eventually uncovers comes as a surprise to him. Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake were never better in a film full of wonderful performances and memorable moments throughout.
