Time has been too tight to blog much lately, but I figured I should link to a couple of brief items I have written up at the CT Movies blog on two recently-deceased Christian film producers who were very active between the 1950s and 1970s: Robert E.A. Lee, producer of the Oscar-nominated Lutheran films Martin Luther (1953) and A Time for Burning (1966); and Dick Ross, director of several early Billy Graham movies (1951-1965) and producer of The Cross and the Switchblade (1970).
