Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure [TV Series] ()

Ernest Hemingway cut a very impressive figure both as an author and as an individual, and in this two-part documentary series, actor and comedian Michael Palin retraces the steps of "Papa"'s long journey as he tries to learn more about his life and his macho lifestyle. Palin visits Oak Park, IL, where Hemingway was born, and Ketchum, ID, where the author took his own life; in between, he makes stops in Spain (in time to enjoy the running of the bulls in Pamplona and bullfighting in Valencia), Italy (where Palin drives an ambulance, as Hemingway did during World War I), Havana (where he visits Hemingway's favorite fishing spots), Paris (including a tour of the flat where Hemingway stayed while living in France), Northern Michigan (the site of Hemingway's summer cottage), and Key West, FL (where Palin attends the city's annual Hemingway Look-Alike Contest). Michael Palin wrote the film and also serves as host and narrator; Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure was shown in America on PBS on May 3, 2000. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Hide synopsis
