He first gained public attention during the late 1940s when his parents arranged for him at age four to be ordained as a preacher, due to his extraordinary speaking ability; he was the youngest known in that position. As a young man, he preached on the revival circuit and brought celebrity to the revival movement. He became a celebrity during the 1970s when he starred in Marjoe (1972), a behind-the-scenes documentary about the lucrative business of Pentecostal preaching. This won the 1972 Academy Award for Best Documentary Film. This documentary is now noted as one of the most vehement criticisms of Pentecostal preaching. (en)

Januar 1944 in Long Beach, Kalifornien), ist ein ehemaliger Erweckungsprediger, der erstmals in den 1940er und 1950er Jahren Berühmtheit erlangte, nachdem er im Alter von nur vier Jahren der jüngste ordinierte Prediger geworden war. Später in den 1970er Jahren wurde er ein allgemein bekannter Star durch die mit einem Oscar ausgezeichnete Hintergrunddokumentation über das einträgliche Geschäft des Predigens in der Pfingstbewegung. Der Name „Marjoe“ ist ein Kunstwort, gebildet aus „Maria“ und „Joseph“. (de)

  • Hugh Marjoe Ross Gortner (geralmente conhecido como Marjoe Goetner, nascido em 14 de janeiro de 1944, em Long Beach, California) é um controverso ex-evangelista e ator estadunidense. Ele chamou a atenção do público em geral ao fim dos anos 1940, quando seus pais fizeram com que fosse ordenado pastor, devido a sua surpreendente habilidade oratória; foi o mais jovem a assumir tal posição. Durante sua juventude, pregou nos circuitos do Avivamento cristão e trouxe fama ao movimento. Contudo, ele tornou-se uma celebridade durante os anos 1970 quando estrelou em Marjoe (1972), um documentário sobre os bastidores do lucrativo negócio da pregação pentecostal. Nele, Marjoe diz que não acredita no que prega, e decide revelar, junto com os diretores do filme, o esquema de manipulação de fiéis praticado por tais igrejas. Este documentário granhou o Oscar de melhor documentário de longa-metragem de 1972. Ele é considerado hoje em dia uma das críticas mais veementes às pregações pentecostais.. Depois do documentário, Marjoe abandona a carreira como pregador e inicia a de ator. Participou de séries e filmes como Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw e Falcon Crest. (pt)
