Fresh good news
2 April 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This low budget Easter story film has George MacReady in the unusual position of being the good guy for a change. MacReady is cast as a Roman centurion who is telling friends of the disciple Thomas of recent events in Jerusalem particularly the fate of a young carpenter from Nazareth who had taken up preaching and had developed a bit of a following.

The format is an interesting one. It's the telling of the gospel, but from the point of view that this was fresh good news. I hardly need go into the plot.

MacReady has a rich, cultured voice which usually is used playing very suave and cultured villains. He's a compelling narrator of the story and his place as a witness to a miracle.

A few other familiar character players like Lowell Gilmore as Pontius Pilate, Morris Ankrum as Peter, and James Griffith as a questioning Pharisee will be spotted in the cast. Robert Wilson who plays Jesus played that role in several other TV and big screen projects.

MacReady also gives a lucid explanation of the difficulties of ruling a far flung empire. No less true in this modern world.

I Beheld His Glory is fine low budget production suitable for more than church.
