Known for his shallow but lucrative Hollywood comedies, John Sullivan (Joel McCrea) explores socially conscious issues raised by Sinclair Beckstin’s novel O Brother, Where Art Thou? Sullivan travels undercover as a hobo, playing the part so well he cannot convince authorities of his true identity. U.S. 1941. English, 90 minutes, B/W. Not rated.


Free with museum admission. Some films may not be appropriate for all audiences.
