Storyline

A sermon by Rev. John Burrows (Sterling Hayden),is interrupted as his wife, Jane (Peggy Webber),walks down the center aisle of the church. She feels she can not keep up with her husband's ambition and sense of importance, and she commits suicide. In a grave-side rejection of religion, John blames his parishioners rather than himself. He runs of and wanders around the country. After being jailed as a vagrant, he ends up in the Bowery section of New York City. The head of a skid-row mission, "Doc' Thorssen (Ludwig Donath') and his blind daughter, Christine (Viveca Lindfors), take care of him and give him a job as a janitor.

A wonderful story. .
26 November 2000 | by (Ripley, Tn.) – See all my reviews

Journey into Light was the best movie I have ever seen. The title fits perfectly. This is as good a movie as I have ever seen. The story of a minister and his fall and rise from grace. I can think of no more to say. The actor, Sterling Hayden, played the part as it should be played.

I have been searching since the late 50's for it. If it is on tape who do I contact to get it made. I > will appreciate any help you can give me
