Marjoe Gortner was a child evangelist in the late 1940s (he became an ordained minister in 1948 at the age of 4). In 1972, he was featured in the documentary "Marjoe", which won an Oscar for Best Documentary, and in it he "exposed" many of the shady practices of the Pentecostal church (and religious tent shows and revivals). After the documentary, he became an actor, and had some success in movies, including: When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder?, The Food of the Gods, and others. Later, he hosted a 1980s reality TV series called "Speak Up America".
