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 »

Loved this show!
19 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was on when I was in my late teens, and I loved it. I think it was originally on CBS. My father used to make me go to church, but after his death, I preferred to stay home from church on Sunday mornings and learn from Marshall's bible story show instead. Marshall's humor was great. He played female biblical characters, mustache included, but I didn't find the show sacrilegious. However, I thought he was filmed over and over for the humor, not because of the show's budget. It worked because that's what made the show humorous along with simplified and painless. I could watch in my PJs too. If more churches/preachers would do what Marshall did, their pews wouldn't be empty on Sunday!
