You Have To See This To Believe It!
13 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The headline is true, except I should say "has to be HEARD" to be believed. That's because this is so far far removed from anything ever produced in Hollywood, as far as I know. In fact, you would guess some Christian organization made this movie, not mainstream Hollywood, even in 1939.

The unique theme of this movie? Believing in the Bible. Wow, what a novel concept!

The lead character in here, played wonderfully by Virginia Weidler, is an 11 or 12-year-old girl who starts off sentences with, "Well....the Bible says."....or "The Lord told me.." And she's proved right, time after time.

It's a short (72-minute) story about a girl who runs away from home, finds a family, and then helps her "adopted" father with a major problem. Along the way, she transforms a young ruffian and his drunken father, and a grumpy old man who owns the town. This girl - with Scripture in hand - does it all!

It isn't simply a corny, overly sentimental film, although those certainly are ingredients in this mix. There also is drama, action, romance and humor....a little bit of everything.

This is a wonderful, unique film. Sad to say it's never been available on tape or disc. Too bad, because there is a sizable Bible-believing audience out there hungry for something as refreshing as this.
