MOVIE THE APOSTLE FEATURES TERRY SMITH SONG
Robert Duvall's movie The Apostle twice features one of the compositions of Nashville songwriter Terry Smith. The song, "Far-Side Banks of Jordan," is sung early in the movie by June Carter Cash, who plays the mother of main character Euliss "Sonny" Dewey, a flawed evangelical preacher who is able to reclaim himself because he maintains his religious faith. Later in the production an instrumental version of the song is used as background music. In the movie Dewey hails from Ft. Worth, Texas (about forty miles from Smith's hometown of Denton), and is portrayed by Duvall, who also wrote and directed the film. Besides Duvall and June Carter Cash, The Apostle stars Farrah Fawcett, Billy Bob Thornton, and Miranda Richardson.
In addition to its appearing in the movie, "Far-Side Banks of Jordan" is included on The Apostle's soundtrack, which also features songs by a variety of artists, among them Patty Loveless, Steven Curtis Chapman, Lyle Lovett, Johnny Cash, Wynonna, the Gaither Vocal Band, Galy Chapman, and Emmylou Harris (in a duet with Duvall). For the soundtrack, the Smith composition is performed by the Carter Family.
