British Religious movie.
14 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Moral Re-Armament's film division was very active at this time. King Vidor had made a film for them in the U.S. In Britain, ex-Old Vic director Henry Cass was directing plays in their Westminster Theatre, not all that far from Buckingham Palace. Among those had been Mr. BROWN COMES DOWN THE HILL, written by the movement's founder.

Accordingly they had Cass, then a stalwart of the British B movie, film the work, which he did with players from the theatre productions and technicians from the British quota movies. On a brief schedule in a small studio, padded by a couple of excursions out of doors, the result cost a fraction of the US budgets.

The plot offers a vice girl, a bishop and a black man going up a plaster mountain, where they meet God, who looks like a youngish City Gent on the weekend.

As drama, it was considerably less engrossing than Cass' contemporary Westminster Theatre production of a life of William Wilberforce but the corporation pronounced themselves satisfied and discussed sending the director to the US to implement cost cutting methods there.
