Methodist 1953 movie of Wesley online

The 1953 movie produced by the Radio and Film Commission of the United Methodist Church is now available online. The movie stars Leonard Sachs as John Wesley.

The 73 minute opens in the churchyard of St Andrews Church in Epworth where Rev. Samuel Wesley is confronted by one of the townspeople telling him to leave town. Samuel leaves church and turns home to the Rectory where John and the other Wesley children are at study. Four minutes into the movie, the rectory is in flames. John is saved, a brand plucked from the burning. From there, the movie jumps to Wesley’s return from Georgia to England.
