    Synopsis:
    By strumming his guitar with words of inspiration, Woody Guthrie instilled hope in the hearts of downtrodden Americans everywhere during the 1930s Depression. The extraordinary life of this legendary balladeer and poet is captured in this elegantly crafted, beautiful film directed by Hal Ashby that won two Oscars (Best Cinematography, Best Original Song Score/Adaptation Score).

    It is 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 (David Carradine) 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 all the poor with his homespun wisdom and fiercely fighting for a better life for all. Featuring classic Guthrie tunes including `This Land Is Your Land`, Bound For Glory is a moving, inspirational portrait of an American icon.
