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 »

The strangest movie you'll never see
4 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is only available to those who are "temple worthy" members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (aka Mormons). It is shown to attendees at the Mormon temples throughout the country. While perhaps millions of people have seen this film (or the original live-action version), you will never see it on television, never be able to rent it from Blockbuster or Netflix, and never download it from a web site. Even devout Mormons will concede that this film is not well-produced and many consider it the low point of their temple experience. Nonetheless, that it is supposed to be a secret, and it is a secret kept by millions of people, makes this probably one of the most important low-budget films in American history.
