  1. The Box set comes with a page booklet describing the sad but interestingly pathetic story of the band as seen through the eyes of "Elmer Gantry," it's fiery blues shouter. The music indicates Stretch must have been an awesomely powerful live act/5(3).
  2. Elmer Gantry (Burt Lancaster) is a slick traveling salesman who is a boozer and a dog hound. He is a born salesman well versed with the bible. He is so good that it is hard to tell the difference whether he's sincere or lying. He is one haunted by his checkered past and his immorality.

  6. Elmer Gantry (Burt Lancaster) is a hard-drinking, fast-talking traveling salesman with a charismatic personality who infuses biblical passages and fervor into his pitches as a way to ease and collect money.
