In Search Of America (1971)
Original name: In Search of America
Genre: Drama
Country: USA
Duration: 90 min.
Story: The producers of In Search of America never declared outright that the made-for-TV film was intended as a series pilot, but there sure are plenty of loose plot ends. Carl Betz and Vera Miles play the parents of shaggy-haired college dropout Jeff Bridges. At the boy's suggestion, Betz and Miles pack their family--including grandma Ruth McDevitt--into a 1928 Greyhound bus and hit the road, in search of you-know-where. The picaresque plotline brings the family in contact with a variety of colorful characters. Written by Lewis John Carlino, a name that would mean a lot more to filmgoers after The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea (1976), In Search of America was first telecast March 23, 1971.
Plot: road trip, pregnancy, on the road, hippie, family relations, childbirth, pregnant woman, trip, bus, grandmother, father son relationship, rock concert, baby born, pregnant wife, birth, grandmother grandson relationship, expectant father, highway travel, dropout, pregnant, mother son relationship
