Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

Screwball comedy classic from writer-director Preston Sturges is as smart, lively, and original as ever. Fast-paced with great characters and snappy dialogue, and some surprisingly effective dark visuals and an authentic atmosphere of Depression Era America - as well as a number of classic comedy moments. Clearly an influence - on several levels - on the films of the Coen Brothers.
