Martin Luther

Most people have heard about the 2003 movie, Luther, starring Joseph Fiennes.  It’s worth seeing if you haven’t.  BUT, did you know that there’s also a very well done 1953 movie, Martin Luther, sponsored by the Lutheran church.

It’s available for purchase and about impossible to find as a rental.  However, this week I stumbled across it on Google Video.  If you’ve got the time, definitely watch the old one too!  It’s a bit campy at times, but it presents other facets of Luther’s story that the 2003 version leaves out.  Together, they’ll give you a more full picture of the Reformer.  Oh, and it’s 1 hr, 46 min, so make some popcorn.  (If your web connection is slower, you can download it to your computer & watch it when you’re not online.)
