The Great Commandment (1939) Rated NR

A Christian film tells the story of the conversion of a zealot and Roman soldier through the teachings of Jesus and the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Starring John Beal, Maurice Moscovitch, and Albert Dekker.

This film was produced by Rev. James K. Friedrich and released by Cathedral Films. It’s not the best-made film or the most historically accurate. However, it does tell a wonderful story of loving thy neighbor. The film follows the Passion in the background with the story of a zealot who converts and then follows Christ. The film was low budget, and the costumes and makeup were not really historically accurate. Even with a great message, the film’s production made it hard to engage with the story. It’s not worth a watch.
