My most recent AFI 100 viewing was Sullivan’s Travels, which turned out to be an adorable and delightful movie. Filmed in 1941, the story follows a Hollywood director trying to capture America’s downtrodden and poor by living as a tramp and traveling the countryside without a penny. He runs into a woman hard on her luck who befriends him and decides to join him on his escapades.
The 40s and 50s are probably my favorite time period from film as a whole. I just love the film style and the stories are really cute. This one was one of my favorites I’ve seen on the AFI (that I wasn’t already familiar with). I would definitely recommend it, and watch it again.
