Edit
Trivia The name Shadrach is Biblical, and comes from the Book of Daniel. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were three men of God who were put into a fiery furnace, but who came out unscathed, because the Lord had protected them. They had been put in there by King Nebuchadnezzer of Babylon, when they refused to bow to an idol. (Daniel 3:1-29) See more »
Goofs The film is set in 1935. When Paul walks into the house past his father and up the stairs (at the beginning of the film), a smoke detector is visible on the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs. See more »
