Powers Boothe received an Emmy nomination for his powerful work in the two-part TV docudrama "The Guyana Tragedy: The Jim Jones Story" (1980), about the 1978 Jonestown massacre that shocked the world. As Reverend Jim Jones, Boothe mesmerizes as the small-time evangelist crook-turned-cult leader who, upon declaring himself the Messiah, established his own South American "People's Temple" community where he ultimatelyconvinced 913 people to commit mass suicide after his men killed a U.S. Congressman who was there to investigate questionable goings-on. Ned Beatty and James Earl Jones co-star. The chilling TV movie was adapted from articles in the "Washington Post" and from Charles A. Krause's book "Guyana Massacre: An Eyewitness Account."
