Flashback: Three different takes on Martin Luther

Flashback: Three different takes on Martin Luther October 31, 2012

Mollie Z Hemingway at Get Religion reminds me that today is not only Halloween, it is also the 495th anniversary of the day that Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation by nailing his 95 Theses to the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. In her post, she links to an article on three films about Martin Luther that were produced in 1953, 1973 and 2003 — and, as it happens, I wrote an article on those same three films about eight years ago. I have re-posted it here. I also wrote a review of the 2003 film for BC Christian News, as well as a brief blog post for the CT Movies Blog (which deleted my byline, for some reason) on the 2009 death of Robert E.A. Lee, who produced the 1953 film.
