Adapted from John Steinbeck’s best-selling novel, The Wayward Bus (1957) is a modern-day pilgrimage tale about a motley group of travelers on the road in rural – and occasionally perilous – California. Among the seekers: a bus driver with a troubled marriage and a roving eye (Rick Jason); his loving but frustrated and alcoholic wife (Joan Collins); a warmhearted stag-party girl (Jayne Mansfield); and a glad-handing salesman looking to settle down (Dan Dailey). In stunning black-and-white Cinemascope™, the bus battles storm, flood and rockslide to get from remote Rebel Corners to the bright lights of San Juan – and the journey turns to one of personal discovery.
