Storyline

A shoemaker, who has been a religious skeptic since the death of his wife and child, dreams that the Lord has spoken to him and will visit him the next day. He cleans his shop and prepares for the Lord's arrival, and helps several people in distress. When the Lord does not appear, he is depressed with the thought he has been forsaken, but his Pastor points out that he was visited by the Lord through his good deeds to others during the day. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Martin The Cobbler by Tolstoy (not the claymation version)
7 December 2005 | by raceblindSee all my reviews

This is the original Martin The Cobbler by Leo Tolstoy. It is an old black and white that I remember seeing in church. Very inspirational and emotional for its time If you are not aware of the story, it is based on the story: Where Love Is, God Is by Leo Tolstoy. It is about a cobbler that dreams that Christ will come the next day. While waiting for Christ to come, he ends up helping people in need.

There is a clamation version of this that was made in 1977. While the claymation version is OK, live actors give it a different perspective.

I would love to find a copy of this. Too bad no one converts old movies like this to DVD.
