Almost a documentary on the 1967 London Crusade. Interesting.
18 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Now out in the UK on DVD - something of a collectors piece, with some well known actors and lots of cine verite coverage of the 1967 Billy Graham London Crusade. I say the film on the big screen in 1970, when booklets were handed out from the Crusade organisation. Several big name English actors add spice to a fairly ordinary - perhaps cusading - movie, which follows the generic story line of the Billy Graham films of the period, but this time we have a strong English accent to add interest. Watch out for Dora Bryan in a phone box - there is an odd graphic in view as grafitti - it is the symbol of another film that Dora was making at the time, perhaps not entirely in keeping with this movie (The Killing of Sister George). This movie is rather special for me - I witnessed some of the events on a large TV screen in Manchester in 1967, and then in 1970 it marked the date my present wife and I became a team.
