Our next Rialto Recommends is Preston Sturges' 1941 comedy SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS starring Veronica Lake. Successful movie director John L. Sullivan, convinced he won't be able to film his ambitious masterpiece until he has suffered, dons a hobo disguise and sets off on a journey, aiming to "know trouble" first-hand. When all he finds is a train ride back to Hollywood and a beautiful blonde companion, he redoubles his efforts, managing to land himself in more trouble than he bargained for when he loses his memory and ends up a prisoner on a chain gang. Time Out raved "Sullivan's Travels is a gem, an almost serious comedy not taken entirely seriously, with wonderful dialogue, eccentric characterisations, and superlative performances throughout." SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS is streaming on the Criterion Channel or available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay, Vudu and others HERE.
