"In God We Trust"

Marty Feldman Week! continues at Trailers from Hell with TV writer Alan Spencer introducing Feldman's "In God We Trust," a satire of televangelists that met with critical derision and terminated his five-year studio contract.

Subtitled "Gimme that Prime Time Religion," this was Marty Feldman's reward for the boxoffice success of his previous directorial effort. Finally free of studio interference, he chose to make a trenchant satire of televangelists and religion, only to see it savaged critically and his five-picture studio deal terminated. Seldom revived or televised, it's a ripe candidate for rediscovery.

    Is it just my imagination or does the second sentence of this "article" repeat what was said in the first sentence?
