The American Hobo

2003 NR

Academy Award winner Ernest Borgnine hosts a documentary look at the adventurous souls who wound their way across America while riding the rails. Author James A. Michener and country music legend Merle Haggard are among the many former hobos interviewed, spinning tales of hopping freight cars and working migratory jobs in the days when the pulsing chug of a locomotive's iron, coal and steam made up our country's lifeblood.
