Sullivan's Travels

Sullivan's Travels is a satirical film directed by Preston Sturges[?] about a director who wants to direct a film called O Brother, Where Art Thou? but is being forced to direct another film instead. The director keeps running away to be homeless, and in various ways keeps ending up back where he started. The film satirizes liberals as well-meaning but naieve.

Sullivan's Travels has been deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Joel and Ethan Coen directed a film called O Brother, Where Art Thou?; the film is loosely based on Homer's Odyssey and inverts the plot of Sullivan's Travels (in keeping with The Odyssey): a man breaks out of prison and tries to return home; there are many obstacles in his way.
