1976 · Beverly Hills, CA
Loosely based on Woody Guthrie's 1946 autobiography. Unsurprisingly, director Hal Ashby's version of Guthrie is a complex one, showing the legendary proletarian singer and activist as a man with contradictory virtues and faults. The film follows Guthrie's initial migration west to escape the dust bowl, his discovery of the plight of migrant workers, his important encounter with singer Ozark Bole, and his subsequent (and problematic) reunion with his family.
Nominated for six Academy Awards, winning two, including Best Cinematography.
Set and shot on location in Tucson, Arizona and throughout California.
