Storyline

A montage of scenes depicting the creation of the world is followed by a dramatization of the travails of Adam and Eve, as they are tempted by Lucifer, ejected from the Garden of Eden, and taught by Peter, James, and John the secret tokens that will one day admit them to God's Celestial Kingdom. Audience members make the same covenants as Adam and Eve during the course of the film. Written by William Perry Shunn <wpshunn@sff.net>

Trivia

Before being retired, this film was shown during the Mormon temple endowment ceremony, one of the religious rites of the LDS Church. Since only Latter-Day Saints are allowed in LDS temples, very few people who are not members of the LDS church have seen this film, and younger Mormons never had the opportunity to see it either. It has not been used in a long time and should not be confused with the video-taped versions that replaced it. The current version not only has a completely different cast, its content has been considerably altered to conform with changes in the endowment ceremony made in 1990. See more »

propaganda
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

religious persecution aside... films like this are simply promotional material for a larger purpose.... eternal revenue! propaganda has been a fixture in film since the silent age and personally i could do without one more piece of "buy our non-sense"... on the other hand if you enjoy films so bad their funny... you know the Mormons never disappoint!... also, i don't appreciate actors being chosen less on their talent or even price but on their commitment to an unusual belief structure is disturbing... i couldn't find a genre to place this film besides corruption... but if you been dumb enough to visit Utah or stumble into the church of latter-day saints, you know exactly what i refer to..... cheers
