Have watched the movie "Sullivan's Travels" several times, and I am always intrigued by the references to "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?' This is the movie which Sullivan (Joel McRea) chooses not to make. Instead he wants to make comedies which make people laugh. Of course, the irony is that the eventual movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" is a hoot from start to finish.
I am also a huge fan of Allison Krause and Union Station. The song George and the boys sing "I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow" is absolutely the hallmark tune of the movie. As the blind D.J. says "That's some mighty fine pickin' and a singin'. For Gospel music lovers, it's hard to beat "Let's Go Down By the River to Pray.
Have not seen the other Coen brothers movies, but "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" trancends generations. My son, who is 24, loves it too. I am 57.
Any knowledge about the connection with "Suillivan's Travel," a four **** movie, by the way, would be appreciated.
