Although the original events depicted in this classic from the drug infested, gang dominated streets happened over thirty years ago, the life-changing solution that David Wilkerson brought to desperate lives was just beginning. The beat goes on. The change in the life of notorious gang leader Nicky Cruz, as shown in the film, proved to be wonderfully lasting and real. Nicky continues today to reach young people around the world with the same life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ that delivered him from violence and despair. And what about the skinny preacher, David Wilkerson, who braved the meanest streets of New York to tell desperate and drug crazed youth that there was a better way? Now, three decades later, his ministry based in Times Square that is still changing lives and offering genuine hope to countless souls who had given up on life.
Now in over 25 languages, The Cross and the Switchblade, starring Pat Boone and Eric Estrada, is one of those rare films that has shown its unique power to connect with the deepest hopes and fears of youth around the world.

This is an incredible movie. Every Christian needs to watch this movie, because it teaches us not to give up on somebody no matter what--God is not going to give up on us.
es muy interesante, necesito obtenerlo porque tengo dentro de mi grupo de jovenes, a jovenes con el problema de de drogas, pandillas etc.
I saw this move when I first became a Christian and its messages have remained with me all my life. This would be helpful to Christians and Non-Christians though it should be prefaced by the fact that it is a true story and that God does act this way even now.
la 1era. pelicula que mire en mi vida y me impacto hasta hoy con 34 aos sigo recordando el dia que vi...
It is a wonderful and ensightful heart touching film. I love the entire film along with Pat Boone and Eric Estrada. I actually thought that Eric got his start from the California Highway Patrol Man Series CHIPS. I used to watch Pat with my parents when I was younger. Thanks so much!!! I love it!!!
ESTA PILICULA LA VI Y LEI EN EL AO DE 1978, PARA MI FUE UN IMPACTO TREMENDO, HIZO CONCIENRIZAR MI VIDA, SIEMPRE LES CUENTO A MIS HIJOS,FAMILIARES Y NIETOS, CREO QUE JAMAS OLVIDAR A ERICK ESTRADSA EN ESTA ACTUACION, SOBERBIA!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one of the all time great Christian films. The story of how David Wilkerson got started evangelizing on the streets is inspiring. And the relationship that formed between him and Nicky Cruz is a real motivator.
David Wilkerson was killed in Texas. He is no longer alive. Pastor Conley is pastor of the Times Square Church
