The Message Part 23 - William Branham's Overnight Fame:

This episode examines the business side of the "Message", seldom considered by followers of William Branham. It also examines the sudden surge in business shortly after Roy E. Davis and William D. Upshaw narrowly escaped prosecution for Federal crimes and sued Los Angeles officials for over a half-a-million dollars. Last, it examines William Branham's 1945-early 1947 claim of how the "gift of healing" came before the story he used in the mid-1947-1965 version of his ministry.
