Marjoe the full film telling the story of Marjoe Gortner.
Marjoe Gortner was a child preacher coerced from such a young age he was preaching at the age of three and was ordained a Pentecostal preacher performing wedding ceremonies when he was four.

Despite the tragedy of indoctrination and this being very dated it's a worthy watch .
