The traveling New Testament
13 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Someone must have seen Tales Of Manhattan where a tuxedo cutaway made the rounds of several different owners and thereby creating five separate stories, six if you count the WC Fields story which was cut from the original print, but now restored. In that you had some of Hollywood's best players.

You did not have that with this film The Good Book which contains no dialog, but has an overriding musical score to aid in telling what is going on. A pocket New Testament makes its rounds like those tails in Tales Of Manhattan and with it a separate story is attached.

My guess is that the people participating just aren't actors and giving them dialog would have been a stretch. So we have a silent film, no titles, but we can tell what's happening.

Sad to say this is one amateurish production, strictly for church audiences.
