Flim-Flam Man ★★ One Born Every Minute 1967

A con man teams up with an army deserter to teach him the fine art of flim-flamming as they travel through small southern towns. Love may lead the young man back to the straight and narrow, but not his reprobate mentor. Scott is wonderful; and the slapstick episodes move at a good pace. 104m/C VHS . George C. Scott, Michael Sarrazin, Slim Pickens, Sue Lyon, Jack Albertson, Harry (Henry) Morgan; D: Irvin Kershner; C: Charles B(ryant) Lang Jr.; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
