“A people- and passion-charged show…a bus trip taken in California by a driver and eight passengers wrestling with their souls.”
—The New York Times
“Takes a pretty wild ride down a California cutoff from Tobacco Road. Danger: an unusual number of soft shoulders and hairpin turns. But somehow or other, Hollywood’s Bus barrels lustily along.”
Adapted from John Steinbeck’s best-selling novel, The Wayward Bus (1957) is a modern-day pilgrimage tale about a motley group of travelers on the road in rural—and occasionally perilous—California. Among the seekers: the bus driver with a troubled marriage and a roving eye (Rick Jason); his loving but frustrated and alcoholic wife (Joan Collins); a warm-hearted stag-party girl (Jayne Mansfield); and a glad-handing salesman looking to settle down (Dan Dailey). In stunning black-and-white CinemaScope™, the bus battles storm, flood, and rockslide to get from remote Rebel Corners to the bright lights of San Juan—and the journey turns to one of personal discovery.
