The story of the building of the Temple in Salt Lake City
A very moving account of the travails of early Mormons to build a Temple to God in Salt Lake City. The well cast actors who played familiar early Mormon leaders really brought to life the pain and suffering which was endured in the pioneer's search for a better life and a better way of living.
One of my favourite films, I've viewed it numerous times (more than 30 times) and oft times wish I could enter the Temple alongside Wilfred Woodruff when he pauses on the steps of the Temple to bid the reporter farewell.
Only one part of the film grated slightly with me, being the dreadful Scots accent of the quarrier.
