The Help pages on Amazon are not very helpful, as they warn you that you will get SD if you don't have a device that respects DRM.
How would I know what my devices do or don't do?
The HELP screen should say click here to see which of your devices will play the full HD version and then take you to your list of configured devices and TELL YOU what you get for the price. There is no way to figure it out without paying.
I have a Tivo and a Roku, and the Roku is listed as OK, so I took a chance and paid full price for the movie. It comes up fine on the TIVO Bolt Amazon Prime Video connection.
I might buy some more movies.
"Which of the world's religions is the closest to the divine truth?"
He answers himself (as Denver writes): "The divine truth is not in a building or a book or a story. Put down that the heart is the temple wherein all truth resides."
He goes on to answer other questions such as "What is the meaning of man's existence?" I'm not giving the answer away ;) but later he says,
"No, I better not go for laughs. You know Voltaire may have had me pegged right? He said I was a comedian playing to an audience who's afraid to laugh."
During the commentary with Terri Garr, Screen writer Larry Gelbart, and Director Carl Reiner one of the speakers says "In real truth, I wish we had asked God some tougher questions. I think we let Him off kind of easy (capital H of course)."
It's fun to listen to the insightful and entertaining commentary afterwards ("Maybe there IS a George Burns.."). The movie is not likely to answer all your spiritual questions, though it'll likely raise a few. All in a spirit of good fun though. Denver and Burns are fantastic.
"Your Honor, I would like to call to the stand.. the Lord God."
