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.
