Director Rich Christiano mentioned "Before we showed this movie in theaters, we first screened it in some Christian film festivals, and the first one we ever showed this movie at was in Boston ..." (at 36:13 in 'Behind the Secrets of Jonathan Sperry'). That was The Merrimack Valley Christian Film Festival in Lawerence, 29 miles north of Boston (3/16/2008-3/23/2008). Rich Christiano also refers to this screening at 25:07 in the DVD commentary, saying the film "wasn't even finished yet." See more »
While the movie was set in 1970, the "Nip-It" pinball machine shown in the diner was not manufactured until 1973. See more »
When this movie was released, the radio ads I heard led me to believe it was a 19th century mystery with Christian overtones. In reality, it was like the picture of your favorite DJ, who looks nothing like you envisioned him. My wife and I watched the DVD last night. I found it to be a well-done, well-acted movie about sharing the Gospel. Mr. McLeod is superb as the lead, with Robert Guillaume complimenting the nicely chosen cast. The props and settings are accurate and nostalgic. It made me long for the innocence of that time. With Easter approaching, we should all reconsider the claims of Jesus on our lives. This movie will cause you to do that.
