Sullivan’s Travels (1941) August 8

This year at Capitolfest (August 9, 10, and 11), we will be paying homage to actor Joel McCrea by presenting many of he and wife Frances Dee’s lesser-known films. As a kick-off to the event, we will also be presenting McCrea’s classic comedy “Sullivan’s Travels” the evening before the festival begins!

Successful movie director John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea), 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 (Veronica Lake), 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.

Admission will be $7.00 for adults, $6.00 for seniors, students, and military (including veterans with an ID), $5.00 for Capitol Friends, and $3.00 for children 12 and under. Admission is FREE for anyone who has registered for any portion of Capitolfest! Just show us your badge, which you can retrieve the night of the event.
