From an early age, Leroy Jenkins is called by a mysterious force he knows only as 'The Spirit'. Abandoned by his Cherokee mother and scorned as 'half-injun', Leroy is raised poor by a rural South Carolina family. Strange voices and supernatural occurrences haunt his early life and he runs from them until the age of 22 when a freak accident - or something more brings him close to death and finally to an Atlanta tent revival where he is miraculously healed. Transformed through faith and endowed with the power to heal others through The Spirit, Leroy begins his career as an evangelist and quickly builds one of the largest ministries in America, befriending the likes of Mae West and soon becoming a celebrity himself. He rocks the establishment as he sings the gospel like Elvis, takes wardrobe tips from Liberace and violently lashes out at anyone who doubts or opposes him, including the government. As he gets wealthier and more flamboyant, Leroy makes many enemies and many mistakes and he ... Written by
The movie captured the way things were back then. The Actors did a wonderful job, Faye Dunaway was a GREAT Mae West. Robert Wagner gives one of his best performances. Brad Dourif shows why he's one of the most sought after actors in the business. Ricco Chapa is a natural born actor. Leroy Jenkins is a one of a kind but Damian playing the Rev brought back memories of when I was a kid. My parents would load up the car and haul all of us kids to the tent meeting in Indiana.
If you grew up listening to Oral Roberts, Billy Graham, or Leroy Jenkins I think you'll find this movie is a trip back in time.
I've seen the movie twice.
