Rating of

A film that takes a few viewing of the films to find the rather interesting story of the film. It does indeed have some obvious scenes, but it still is an interesting study of the time and place that the story takes place in. It gets better as it goes on telling a rather interesting character study of Elmer Gantry, well portrayed by Burt Lancaster who treads the line between earnestness and sarcasm quite well.
