Time To Run

These are items which are not displayed in our permanent exhibit but are offered here for online viewing.

The past few months we have been featuring memorabilia from World Wide Pictures, a film production and distribution company of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association established in 1951.

This month we’re featuring Time to Run. This film was released in 1972. The movie highlights a powerful family drama as a son becomes a runaway after conflict with his father. The cast included Ed Nelson, Randall Carver, and Barbara Sigel.

Time to Run was produced as an evangelistic tool, shown in theaters nationwide for free, and followed by altar calls and evangelistic follow-up from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. During its run over 400,000 people made a first-time commitment to Christ.

View some of the promotional material that helped make Time to Run a success.
