Parece apoyar la idea de una verdadera, "sentida" fe religiosa -el eje de la película- en unos seres que dedic... read more

""Elmer Gantry" tells a story about the fast-talking, booze-drinking, womanizing salesman (Burt Lancaster) who travels to a small town in Zenith, Winnemac to spread the word of Christianity. Once his preaching becomes successful, he teams up and falls in love with an evangelist Sister Sharon Falconer (Jean Simmons), who at first smells his fishy scheme. Meanwhile, Elmer’s ex-lover and prostitute Lulu Barnes (Shirley Jones) plots her revenge by exposing blackmail photos of them during a sexual a"

"Burt Lancasterin väkevä roolisuoritus sekä muutama potentiaalisesti mielenkiintoinen teema menevät haaskuuseen elottomassa, kuivassa ja turhaan 2,5 tuntisessa keskitien hollywoodkalkkunassa."
