The Road Between Heaven and Hell - Documentary

Post by Mr. G » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:21 am

Made in 1984, this short documentary tells the story of the legendary 19th century wanderer, the Leatherman. In 1883, wearing a sixty-pound suit sewn from leather boot-tops, a wanderer known only as the Leather Man began to walk a 365 mile loop between the Connecticut and Hudson Rivers that he would complete every 34 days, for almost six years. His circuit took him through at least 41 towns in southwestern Connecticut and southeastern New York, sleeping in caves, accepting food from townspeople, and speaking only in grunts and gestures along the way. What remains of the mysterious Leather Man today are the news clippings and photographs taken by the first-hand witnesses of this captivating individual.
