Unconventional

Given the roguish lifestyle that Robert Mitchum led the last thing you would ever figure to see him in his a Christian production. But whatever else Mitchum was in his life he was always unconventional and doing the unexpected. Waiting For The Wind is definitely unconventional for him.

To say this is a bit above the usual Christian film is to belabor the obvious because this 23 minute short subject has some real Hollywood names and production values. Mitchum and Rhonda Fleming are the grandparents of young Zachary Bostrum who is visiting them with his father Jameson Parker. The woman that held them together, Bostum's mother, Parker's wife, and Mitchum and Fleming's daughter was killed by a drunken driver. And now Mitchum is in the last stages of a terminal cancer.

But this Iowa farmer has one desire left and he's building a sailboat to take to the ocean, but he might not have enough time left to do it. He's got the faith, but will that be enough?

It's a decent enough film and better bring a box of Kleenex before viewing this movie. I'm betting there is a real story about how the Lutheran Church got these players to do this short film, especially Robert Mitchum, not a man known for piety. Maybe we'll learn the answer some day.
