Sullivan's Travels is a hilarious 1941 comedy written and directed by Preston Sturges. The film revolves around John L Sullivan (Joel McCrea), a young Hollywood director, who has been very successful making comedies. He wants to venture into making dramas that have a social message within them, so he confronts his boss, Mr. Lebrand (Robert Warwick), about making a film based on Sinclair Beckstein's book "O Brother, Where Are Thou?". His boss wants him to keep making comedies because that is where the money is. John makes the decision to continue with his dreams of making a dramatic film, but believes to make the movie right he must first experience life as a hobo. With his butler (Robert Greig) and his valet (Eric Blore) following behind him, he sets out to live like the homeless.
