How to describe this film?  Based on Homer's Odyssey it's partly a musical (Bluegrass), partly screwball comedy, partly road movie.  Gorgeous George is brilliant as Everett, a convict on the run with two of his fellow prisoners.  They encounter seductive sirens, a sinister cyclops in the form of a one eyed bible salesmen, while waiting at home is Everett's patient Penelope.  And have you ever heard The Soggy Bottom Boys?  Thought not.  Well, now's your chance.
