Summary
  • Elmer Gantry: Traveling salesman Elmer Gantry stumbles into a revival meeting and discovers that he can hustle money in a tent-show as easily as in a saloon with Sister Sharon Falconer. He delivers demon-bashing oratories when an old flame reappears and Gantry is forced to control demons of a more worldly order
  • Convicts: In 1902 Texas, 13-year-old Horace goes to work on old Soll's farm to earn enough money to buy a headstone for his father's grave. Unfortunately for Horace, Soll's senility, ill health and obsession with the convict labor he uses to work the farm make it unlikley that Horace will ever be paid the $12.50 Soll owes him for the six months of work
  • Birdman of Alcatraz: How does bitter convict Robert Stroud cope with a lifetime of solitary confinement? The answer, in a sense, comes from above in the form of a feeble sparrow he finds in the isolation yard
