Alan Spencer on

In God We Trust

Released 1980
Distributor Universal

Subtitled Gimme that Prime Time Religion, this was Marty Feldman’s reward for the box office success of his previous directorial effort. Finally free of studio interference, he chose to make a trenchant satire of televangelists and religion, only to see it savaged critically and his five-picture studio deal terminated. Seldom revived or televised, it’s a ripe candidate for rediscovery.
