An affectionate small-town comedy revolving around the need to believe, especially in life out there, with Stanton in his element as a charlatan faith healer who capitalizes on Fred Ward’s find of outer-space-communicating supermarket clerk Cindy Williams. Made in 1980, the movie sat on the studio’s shelf through rough test screenings and failed marketing plans before finally getting released city by city, garnering raves from critics including Roger Ebert and Vincent Canby.
