Trivia

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 »

Marshall Efron memories
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was well into my 30's when I first saw Efron's Sunday School lessons on TV. And I was instantly captivated. I, too, have a great memory of the Solomon segment. The women, Mrs. Harl and Mrs. Ot, named the baby in question respectively: Karl Harl and/or Scott Ot. I had despaired of ever seeing these bits again, but God bless (no pun intended) YouTube. I'll continue to check periodically and perhaps someone will put the Solomon story up. The writing was always clever and ingenious, frequently hilarious--painless indeed. Though some lines may have been over the heads of young children, he never talked down to them. In his various roles Efron, by turns, was charming, rude, bombastic, simple, mean, kindly,wise, unaware, generous, greedy, silly, etc. He was everyone and everything. The only adjective I have never applied to him is unenthusiastic. He just seemed to be having so much fun. I wonder what his 'real life' persona is?
