Those Alaskan Summer Vistas
8 August 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Young Chris Kydd is not looking forward to the father and son kayaking trip with the enthusiasm he should be. The reason is because father Wes Parker is going to use the opportunity to tell him that he and mother Rita Walter who is also pregnant by the way will be breaking up. It seems as though Parker had himself an office fling that got way out of hand. Kids sense these things and Kydd is no different.

But while on this trip they come upon an old mining ghost town from the gold rush days and an old hermit played by Jonathan Cavan who just lives for those religious broadcasts from I assume CBN on his short wave radio. Billy Graham is conducting a crusade in Anchorage, Alaska and Cavan would love to scratch up enough money to see Graham preach in person.

This Christian film from the Billy Graham Evangelical Association has a good budget and you will love the scenic vistas of the Alaskan summer shown. The performances are sincere as well and I'm sure it did well on the evangelical film circuit.

Cry From The Mountain features the farewell performance of Coleen Gray playing Walter's mother. Her's was a career that saw her working with Victor Mature, John Wayne, John Payne, and Bing Crosby among others. At least she didn't go the horror picture route.

Enjoy Alaska viewers
