Sarah Kernochan in Marjoe


1972 PG

This Oscar-winning documentary explores the life of one-time child evangelist and faith healer Marjoe Gortner. The son of professional evangelists, Gortner was preaching on the Southern tent-revival circuit by the age of 3. Twenty-eight at the time of the film's release, Gortner freely admits to being a scam artist -- but still maintains a compelling charisma, possibly explaining his later career as an actor in B movies and in 1974's Earthquake.
