Bound for Glory is outstanding biographical cinema, not only of the late Woody Guthrie but also of the 1930s Depression era which served to disillusion, inspire and radicalize him and millions of other Americans.

David Carradine stars as iconic folk singer, Woody Guthrie. Unable to find work in Texas after the Dust Bowl devastation of the 1930s, Guthrie leaves his family with relatives and rides the rails in search of work along with thousands of others. While travelling he records the brutality and injustices he witnesses in song, his protest music earning him a following through the radio… Loosely adapted by Robert Getchell from Woody Guthrie's 1943 partly fictionalised autobiography, Bound for Glory.
