Synopsis[edit]

A woman who believes she has been chosen by God to heal people is taken in by a greedy promoter and his shrewish wife to make the rounds of the rural South.

Production[edit]

George Hamilton had just made Where the Boys Are and was determined to make "better, more serious movies", in part to impress the family of his then-girlfriend Susan Kohner. However the film was not a success, suffering in comparison to Elmer Gantry.[1]

The movie was shot in Florida.[1]
