Billy: The Early Years has a website.


CT Movies has an update on Billy: The Early Years, the Billy Graham biopic coming out in October, including a link to the film’s official website, which includes a trailer. Bits of it seem kind of over-the-top, and the photo below would seem to confirm suspicions that the film will give Charles Templeton, the evangelist-turned-agnostic played by Martin Landau, something of a non-historically happy ending. But we’ll see. I do get a kick out of the scenes of young Graham refining his preaching style.
