That, and other news, in today’s Roundup and Recap.
The documentary, which opens March 27, tells the story of Blessitt, who is the world record holder for world’s longest walk, in which he carried a replica of Jesus Christ’s cross on his shoulder the entire time. Blessitt was known in the 1960s as the “minister of Sunset Strip,” for trying to save the souls of the drug and hippie culture of L.A. circa 1960.
I haven’t seen the doc yet, but it will be interesting to see if it does crossover in some way, especially in the changed political environment. Crouch is perhaps best known as the filmmaker behind “The Omega Code,” and the son of Trinity Broadcasting’s Paul Crouch.
The younger Crouch tells Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith that the movie’s message will be one “of hope, love and unity — not divisiveness, death and killing. And, everyone can get behind that.”
His father, he says, has been a longtime friend — even if he initially thought that Blessitt was “kind of a kook.”
