David Carradine

David Carradine by strumming his guitar with words of inspiration, Woody Guthrie instilled hope in the hearts of downtrodden Americans everywhere during the 1930s Depression. Now, the extraordinary life of this legendary balladeer and poet is captured in this “elegantly crafted, hugely beautiful and interesting film, which reveals loving integrity in every frame” (Los Angeles Times)! Winner of two Oscars and starring David Carradine, Bound for Glory features “magnificent cinematography” (New York) and an amazing score adaptation.

It's 1936, and the Great Depression is forcing droves of people from the dust bowls of Texas to the alluring green fields of California...and unemployed sign-painter Woody Guthrie is among them. Determined to find a better life out west, Guthrie hitchhikes, hops freight trains and sings his way across America, uplifting the spirits of the poor with his homespun wisdom and fiercely fighting for a better life for all.
