The DVD: The Ballad of Ramblin' Jack
Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for Artistic Achievement, 2000.
The amazing life of Ramblin' Jack filmed and directed by his daughter, Aiyana Elliott. A no-holds barred, candid portrait of the legendary rambler, from his unlikely Brooklyn roots, running away at 15 to join the rodeo, traveling with Woody Guthrie, moving to Europe to influence the Rolling Stones, coming home to become Bob Dylan's mentor and later, an inspiration to every every American roots-based performer.
Goes beyond the surface as Aiyana deeply probes and tells a poignant story of a father who was rarely around.
Weaves stellar performances with historical and present-day ramblings.
Great scenes and songs with Johnny Cash, winning the Grammy and the Presidential Medal of Arts. Includes rare Guthrie family home movie footage.
Features Arlo Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Pete Seeger, Odetta and Dave Van Ronk.
