Did You Know?


Because of budget constraints, Marshall Efron was the only person to appear on-camera. A "crowd scene" was shot by having Efron walking past a camera multiple times in different costumes, and the images were superimposed on top of each other. When a scene required two or more people to appear, Efron would have scenes shot with him speaking to someone off-camera or to a dummy with its back to the camera. Corresponding scenes then would be shot, with Efron playing the other role. The footage would be edited to make Efron appear to talk to himself. See more »

Searching for YEARS for Videos
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was BRILLIANT. I have searched for YEARS for an archive of early TV programs that has these shows and found none. I've phoned CBS, left numerous messages on Marshall Efron's answering machine, written lots of archives and gotten nowhere. If anyone knows where these programs can be found, please let those of us who adored this brilliant television know. It would be fantastic to have a DVD available. Efron and his writer did do a book of bible stories which I found a used copy of, but it's not the same as having the CBS broadcasts. So. . . somebody needs to rattle somebody's chain and get them to release these programs on DVD or video. We need them.
