    While there are a few more I could add, "Elmer Gantry" from 1960 is a masterpiece.
    Burt Lancaster's performance is one of the greatest in film history (he won the Oscar)
    and Shirley Jones is also remarkable (best supporting actress). One of my all-time favorite
    films in the history of film....

    I like the way a sports-minded person noticed that this could be turned into the 1971-72 Boston Bruins defence corps:

    Bobby (Orr) and Carol (Vadnais) and Ted (Green) and Dallas (Smith)
