“There are images in Hal Ashby's BOUND FOR GLORY so striking or so beautiful I doubt I'll ever forget them.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A hauntingly beautiful, socio-political film.” - Ruth Batchelor, Los Angeles Free Press

May 7 & 31 | Adapted from Woody Guthrie’s 1943 autobiography of the same title, BOUND FOR GLORY chronicles the struggling young musician (played lovingly by David Carradine) as he leaves his native Oklahoma and heads west to southern California during the Dust Bowl. Wexler won an Academy Award for Best Cinematography for this sprawling and stunning portrait.
