THE WORLD'S GREATEST SINNER Part 2 - God Hilliard - "Take My Hand Again" (1962)

What better to follow up Felix with than another completely wild cat, Timothy Carey, and Part 2 of "The World's Greatest Sinner." Now it's time for things to change!

As uplifting as part one of "The World's Greatest Sinner" was, and you can read it right "here", that's how far "The World's Greatest Sinner" Part 2 takes Clarence God Hilliard down!

This WTF!? Wednesday feature goes out to Double D at WFMU, without a doubt, the best radio station in the world!! When you ain't got nothing else to do, then why not listen to WFMU?

Well, Clarence really screwed up when he told all his Followers that they were Gods, and Super Human Beings, the next thing you know, there's a riot going on!! This movie preceded the Watts Riots in L.A. by three years!!

God has a serpent and Carolina Samario too!

The God riots go on, the kids think "We're Gods," but people who haven't read God's doctrine or seen God's act, think they're "nothing but a bunch of idiots, that's all!"

As well meaning as his original intentions were, God Hilliard has his flaws, and like all great musicians, he has dues to pay!!!

Clarence, I mean God, starts to show his mean streak!

Depression, Elation, Death, Destruction! Everything is starting to spiral out of control!

Here, he is folks, God Hilliard.......

....and even though he doesn't know it, Clarence Hilliard has literally sold his soul for rock and roll!!

God Clarence is pretty much a one-hit-wonder, and if you check the charts, you will see that the one-hit-wonder competition was pretty tough in 1962! Check it out! Just to name a few, there's Arthur Alexander (Who I really hate to call a one-hit-wonder because his version of "Anna" is better than The Beatles) - "You Better Move On," Joe Meek's The Tornadoes with "Telstar," Billy Joe and the Checkmates - "Percolator," The Contours - "Do You Love Me," Claudine Clark - "Party Lights" ("I see the lights, I see the party lights, they're red, blue, and green"), Don and Juan - "What's Your Name" and Ernie Maresca - "Shout! Shout!(Knock Yourself Out!)" Songs so powerful, and played so many times in repetition on KAFY AM radio, that I still remember all the words to this day!! AAaaahhhh!!!

The Devil has a place for God Hilliard, and the real God is more than willing to work with Satan on this particular issue!

Heed my warning, all you followers take shelter while there is still time!! Nobody else is paying attention!! Go!!

With all the stupid crap going on in the world, it's a damn shame that somebody can't get do something good for humanity, and get this film released, so it could be seen by all the good people who deserve to see it!!!

Timothy Carey as God Hilliard does rule the universe, doesn't he?

The hall that leads to The End!

To make a point, the very last sequence of events is in colour!! Timothy Carey might be gone, but like God Hilliard, his genius will remain forever, and now that I think about it, Timothy Carey really is a God! His vision came true!!

I'm so glad I actually got to see this film! It was a messed up VHS tape and the sound wasn't the clearest but still. A film worth seeing just for its message.
