Papa Was a Preacher
Papa Was a Preacher
By John McGreevey. Based on the book by Alyene Porter.

Cast: 7m., 8w. For the minister's family, growing up has tribulations that most children escape. They can't roller skate in public because some of the parishioners object. The boys cannot protect their cotton patch from a gang of "toughs" because their father opposes fighting. The daughters of the richest parishioners try to make the preacher's sons date them (or else!). The troublemaker, Miss Jones, even objects to Alyene reciting poems by Shakespeare. Weaving through all this is a delightful boy/girl complication in which two brothers want to date the same girl while their sister is being courted by a would-be musician. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 80 minutes.
