Crossroads

"Cocky young musician tracks down legendary bluesman in a Harlem hospital and agrees to bring him back to his Mississippi home in return for some long-lost songs." (Maltin Review)

The movie is remarkable chiefly for the music provided by Ry Cooder

 

yet other films coming to mind:

The Petrified Forest

Stagecoach

A Streetcar Named Desire

Rebel Without a Cause

Thunder Road

The Last Picture Show
& Texasville (+ novels!)

Paper Moon

Lost in America

Heart Beat
based on Caroline Cassady's account of her life with Jack and Neal; Spacek, Heard, and Nolte improve a thin text and fuel the Kerouac myth, for a film biography was soon after produced (Kerouac came out in 1985)

The Wizard of Oz (!?)
