Sorry, the titles were so much a like.

This has been one of the most inspirational and also enjoyable films I've seen, how God can openly use the life of a young man who has his life open to God.

I have to admit that I hadn't gotten this through Amazon, but from the local WallMart here in New Jersey. A friend of mine had pointed out to me thay had it on their shelves and I had quickly bought it and we watched it not long after getting home. One of the things I was greatly interested in see after the film was the 2009 sermon that was said to have been included as one of the special features. You can imagine my disappointment when I checked the special features section and the only things listed were a behind-the-scenes, and a trailer. What happened? I was going to get a copy of this film for a friend's father who is a great fan of Mr. Graham. He would have been ecstatic to know there would have been a sermon on the dvd. I'm glad I had checked the special features before sending him out a copy.

If you are a fan of Billy Graham and don't care if there's a sermon of his included, then buy this movie. Run, don't walk to get it. You won't be sorry you did. If you're hoping for some inspirational words spoken by Billy himself in a taped sermon... then don't bother. Box says it's there, but it isn't.

I, too bought this beautiful movie at my local Wal*Mart for just $9.00! I sure got my money's worth, even though there is no sermon included, as was promised. That was a big disappointment!

I have Billy Graham's biography in book form so I knew about his early years. Still, it was fun to watch on the screen. The acting was wonderful! I had never heard of most of these actors so I was very surprised at how good they all were. Martin Landau, Jennifer O'Neil, and Lindsey Wagner were great, as always.

Billy Graham, the man, is a true blessing to all Christians and even non-Christians the world over and it's about time a movie about him was made. I just hope the rest of his life will be covered through film someday. And I hope it's not too far ahead!

In this day and age when it's so difficult to find something the entire family can watch, Billy, The Early Years is a gem to stumble across. In fact, I am going to be taking my DVD copy to church for a Family Movie Night real soon.

Thank you, Alice Kane

Background:

William Franklin "Billy" Graham, Jr. was born on November 7, 1918 to William Franklin Graham I (1888-1962) and Morrow Coffey (1892-1981). He grew up on a dairy farm near Charlotte, North Carolina. He was raised in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. However, it was only when he attended a series of revival meetings in Charlotte which were led by evangelist Mordecai Ham in 1934 that he truly accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. He was 16 years old.

He attended Sharon High School until May 1936. He then went attended Bob Jones College (Tennesse) for one semester before transferring to the Florida Bible Institute in 1937. It was here that he received his calling to preach the Gospel. Subsequently in 1943, Graham graduated from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois with a degree in anthropology. In August of that year he also married his classmate Ruth Bell (1920-2007). They had five children together. While attending this college, he became pastor of the United Gospel Tabernacle and also had other preaching engagements.

Storyline/Presentation:

This movie is unfolded by the recollections of Billy Graham's early mentor in the ministry, Charles Templeton (Martin Landau). These two men became very good friends as they ministered the Word together. However, at the end of World War II, as Templeton views the images of the Holocaust, his faith in God starts to diminish. Hence as Graham starts to be more well recognized and established, Templeton, turns his back on his flock and takes up a secular position instead.

This film obviously, is not your typical 'white wash' Christian movie, but it delves into the heart of man, and their frailties.

This has been one of the most inspirational and also enjoyable films I've seen, how God can openly use the life of a young man who has his life open to God. Armie Hammer does a fantastic job of portraying a young farm boy who believes God wants him to preach; along the way he stumbles yet grows while learning how to preach. One of the finest scenes for me was him preaching to a passing crowd while only one man responds, 'no one wants anything to do with me' and Billy says "God does", and embraces the black man pouring out his heart. Then the wonderful scenes of a nervous lovestruck college student hopelessly falling for Ruth, who becomes his one and only the rest of her life. So many other poignant scenes with Charles Templeton, becoming youngest president of a Bible college, and ending with his famous 1949 Los Angeles Tent Crusade (which both of my parents attended). This is fraught with emotion, laughter, tears, and all because of love for God who first loved us. A wonderful film I'd recommend to anyone!!

This is a wonderful movie on so many different levels. In many ways it is the story of two men, Billy Graham and Charles Templeton, and highlights the consequences that each man has as a result of his faith choices. Providing a contrast between the two men's lives made the main message all the more meaningful. One of its strengths is that it does not water down the faith elements and beautifully presents Billy Graham's call to the ministry. The balance of faith, humour, romance, and dealing with real issues, makes for a very well-rounded film. One of the strong messages of the movie is that God will never leave or forsake us, and it encourages people to come to true faith in Jesus Christ through its accurate portrayal of the Gospel message.

First of all it is well acted by the entire cast from major to minor characters. Armie Hammer portrays Billy Graham brilliantly and is careful not to overplay the role. He is also an actor with impeccable comedic timing and this adds to the story as well by presenting Billy as just a regular fellow with a calling to preach the Gospel. The only weakness is with the portrayal of his mixed, and rather complex, accent. However, Armie's presentation of Billy as a man, and not as a spiritual icon, is really well done. Lindsay Wagner plays his mother and also has a standout performance. I was surprised to see Scott Hamilton, the figure skater, in a minor role. He does a good job as well! I also like Cliff Bemis' performance as Dr. Ham and Kristoffer Polaha as the younger Charles Templeton.

*Spoiler Paragraph: Part of the story is told through an aging Charles Templeton, who talks to news reporters about his friendship with Billy Graham from his hospital bed.
