Bibles are a tough sell in the groundbreaking documentary classic "Salesman" (1968). The film focuses four salesmen struggling to make a living by going door-to-door selling expensive Bibles to poor Catholic families that can't afford them. Using the cinéma vérité style of filmmaking made popular in the 1960s, directors Albert Maysles, David Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin provide an authentic, unflinching look at the role of faith in the context of the American Dream.
