George and Ethel are concerned about the salvation of their next-door neighbors, but don't know how to reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ. During an evening get-together of George and Ethel's Christian friends, everyone is captivated by the sight of a blimp flying overhead. Then Herm gets a bright idea: why not use a blimp to proclaim the Christian message to the unchurched citizens of Middletown? The group incorporates, buys a used blimp, hires a pilot, then commences to evangelize their hometown by towing Bible-verse banners, 'firebombing' folks below with gospel tracts, and broadcasting Christian music and programs over loudspeakers. But a series of misadventures puts the blimp ministry in jeopardy. And George becomes increasingly uneasy about the methods and business practices of International Gospel Blimps Incorporated and its "Commander", Herm. Do the personal sacrifices made by the group's members justify the results? And will George and Ethel's next-door neighbors ... Written by yortsnave

Great film
14 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my all time favorite Christian film. It shows a great message about how to reach others for Christ, and does it well in a short amount of time. It is not easy to find, but I would recommend it. Also, many senior adults will enjoy this as it was produced in the 1960's and they will relate to some of the visuals. It also shows how Christians can sometimes go to extremes to share their message, while missing the mark and the easy way! I have shown this in numerous churches, and it is always a hit. The name alone should tell you it is going to be fun. Children through adults will enjoy this has a story easy enough to be understood by all, and it has lots of laughs along the way.
