Wagon Master – It’s Movie Night!

It’s been a while since I’ve had a movie night with my wife, and I guess that’s still the case, as this one was strictly a movie afternoon.

The film in question is from 1950 and was made in black and white.

Wagon Master is directed by John Ford and is based on a group of Mormons who embarked on a trek out west.

My wife has a relative in her distant family tree, who became a Mormon, left Tipton, ended up on a trek himself to Utah and became quite well-known in their faith.

As evangelical Christians, we do differ theologically from Mormons but nevertheless it’s an historical link and is fascinating.
