Family Theater: I Beheld His Glory (TV) (John T. Coyle, 1953) **
This pretty much presents the same familiar story as HILL NUMBER ONE (1951), though shot in color so, in fact, does the following film THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION (1958) but it's told from the viewpoint of a Roman officer (George Macready). Curiously enough, Macready is actually not actively involved in any of the events on the way to Calvary and he catches the Christianity bug from his various conversations with the doubting Apostle Thomas! As if that wasn't enough of a handicap to one's involvement into the whole affair, the treatment is pretty stolid overall and easily emerges as the least rewarding of the four modest films made by various evangelical groups about Christ's Passion that I watched in quick succession.
