The film stars Steve Martin as Neal Page, a high-strung marketing executive, who meets Del Griffith, played by John Candy, an eternally optimistic, overly talkative, and clumsy shower curtain ring salesman who seems to live in a world governed by a different set of rules. They share a three-day odyssey of misadventures trying to get Neal home to Chicago from New York City in time for Thanksgiving dinner with his family. The hosts discuss everything from filmography, to casting/acting, directing, cinematography, editing, score, sound editing, etc. HELPFUL LINKS: IMDB Page – Wiki Page –,_Trains_and_Automobiles 23 Reasons Why Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the best Thanksgiving Movie – AVC Review – 10 Best Moments in Movie – How Much Would the Trip Cost Today? – TV Ropes’ Article –
