THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE (Theatrical Release USA 1970)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

The Cross and the Switchblade—a good example of how religion can work within troubled communities to break serious challenges—works to establish Christianity as a healing force. While not a strong film in scripting, dialogue, and acting it does make its point. Watch for Eric Estrada from Chips and a very believable Pat Boone.
