In explaining the unusual move by the 1.5 million-mem- ber American Baptist Conven- tion, Rev. Kenneth Curtis, general manager of the church's newly-formed Gate- way Films, says: motion picture theatre is a central place where the values and views of young Americans are shaped." Tliis is ample reason, he adds, for the church to get into that field. Moreover, he says, "the pervasive work of the pospel in society is as powerful a subject as any other for the screen." Nevertheless, the denomina- tion is the first in the U.S. to enlsr the highly-competitive movie arena with professional Quality productions, one of them already a success, and Hie other soon to hit the mar- ket. Gateway Films currently is booking The Cross and the Switchblade in 250 to 300 thea- tres in the cc-ntry. The film, starring Pat Boone, already has grossed more than K mil- lion in more than a year of sho-.vings. STARS ANNE BAXTER The agency thus fall also is The Late Liz, a film starring Academy Award win- ners Anne Baxter and Jack Albertson, and has plans for distributing other films with a religious message. "While the sex-and-violence films are going stronger and stronger, a deeper and deeper backlash is growing against them." says Mr. Curtis. Herb Gi'llis. a film distribu- ting executive who was in- volved in marketing of the movie. Love Story, agrees there is a crowing, major de- mand for the type of movie that upholds the value of i character and faith. Wh'le Gateway's objective is net to mal'e money, slice it is a non-profit organization, it recognizes Hint its films must attract audiences, or theatres show But the initial offering.

I giously-motivatcd films can win audiences in the secular marketplace. The film, based, on the true story of country preacher David Wilkerson who became an evangelist among youth gang members and drug ad- dicts in New York City's ghet- toes. is to be kept on the movie circuit at least another year. ABOUT ALCOHOLIC At the same time. Gateway- is releasing The Late Liz, which tells the true story of a wealthy girl's decline into al- coholism and her recovery through conversion to Christi- anity. Mr. Curtis the recep- tion of these films "has at- tracted the confidence of sev- eral producers, and Gateway Films now has several new under consideration." Gateway formed early this year and obtained thB rights" to The Cross and the Switchblade, after its original producer and distributor. Dick Ress Associates, went bank- rupt. Mr. Curtis says the firm, whose aim also was to turn out quality movies with, a message, had invested too heavily in a second movie be- fore realizing the potential proceeds from the first. Consequently, the American Baptist Convention, a major investor in the Ross enter- prise, took it over. 'U DEPENDABLE SOLID-STATE SUPER GOLD V6DEO GUARD TUNER!
