This film is an excellent biography of Woody Guthrie, one of America's greatest folk singers. He left his dust-devastated Texas home in the 1930s to find work, and discovered the suffering and strength of America's working class. Written by

The movie shows a scene with signs marking the California-Arizona border, where there is a checkpoint set up to turn people away unless they can show $50 in cash. The entire California-Arizona border consists of the Colorado River. The scene is shot in the middle of the desert with no river in sight. However, since the river runs at a lower elevation than the surrounding terrain, it is entirely possible to be within a quarter-mile of the river and not see it. See more
