Storyline

Remember that man in the rainbow-colored Afro wig who carried the "John 3:16" sign? During the 70s and 80s he seemed to be everywhere: at televised baseball and football games, shuttle launches, and hundreds of other events. So who was he, and what ever happened to him? In Sam Green's award-winning new "slapstick tragedy," we find out. And the truth involving an unhappy childhood, a kidnapped hotel maid, and three life sentences in prison is stranger than fiction...

Fascinating study of a man's descent into fundamentalism and insanity.
26 October 1998 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

A fascinating study of the descent into madness of Rollen Stewart, aka, the Rainbow Man. Stewart garnered national attention when he appeared in leisure suits and a rainbow wig at several Superbowls and other sporting events. At some point in the '70's, he gave up the "disco" lifestyle and was born again. The film depicts the dark side of fundamentalism by documenting the gradual take over of Stewart's personality by his Messianic complex.
