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, he is still at it with a ministry based in Times Square that is still changing lives and offering genuine hope to countless souls who had given up on life.

a great adaptation of the book
3 stars By Glenn Misztal, Jun 19 2013
This movie is a great adaptation of the book of the same name by David Wilkinson. Pat Boone plays the gentle Wilkinson who doesn't give up on Nicky Cruz (Erik Estrada of C.H.i.P.S fame) and his street gang. The movie is set in the 50s, but the tone and mode more reflects the late 60s or 70s - a somewhat disco era as shown by the music soundtrack.
The performances are good, not over the top and the conversion of Cruz is believable. 
I would recommend showing this movie on a 'youth group' night at your church.
