Bound For Glory (1976) – Director: Hal Ashby

The first ever Steadicam shot as excecuted by it’s creator Garrett Brown on Bound For Glory, the 1976 film based on American folk singer Woody Guthries autobiographical book of the same name. Directed by Hal Ashby with the unusual but surprisingly effective casting of  David Carradine – then best known for role in the hit  television series Kung Fu – as Guthrie, Bound For Glory received six Oscar nominations in 1977, winning for Haskell Wexlers gorgeous magic hour photography.
