About the film:
Burt Lancaster shines in his Oscar winning performance as the titular wandering, boozy, womanizing and fast -talking “preacher” who joins the evangelical outfit of the sincere Sister Sharon (Jean Simmons) in Richard Brooks’ entertaining, relevant, brutally honest yet sympathetic look at the machinery of “God” selling “imposters”.
The classic scene where Lancaster bursts into song after a train-fight remains goosebump-inducing.
The film was a major influence on PT Anderson’s “The Master” and winner of three Oscars including Best Screenplay.
