I could spend hours and hours telling you about the different things that were forbidden to either me or other kids I knew who had similar home situations (as was almost always the case, the homeschooled kids I went to church with had it the worst), all in the name of further building a wall to separate Christian homes from The World, that evil place outside where Satan was putting kissing homos on television and Murphy Brown was having a child—without a husband! That’s real heroism, and I like it. It isn’t hard to find people who converted as children after watching these movies. The Antichrist’s forces try to use the child as leverage to get more information from David, but he refuses and is let to the guillotine, and the film once again ends as our intrepid hero faces death with dignity. She then drives to Granny’s house and discovers a framed photo of her, which likewise fades into a flashback to Granny making gingerbread men and issuing a similar warning. Certainly there was no other way that an Iowa actor could possibly ever have come into contact with an indie filmmaker who made movies exclusively in Iowa, right? The larger goals, of opposing the Antichrist and converting as many people as possible before the end of the Tribulation period, are clear. And an inseparable part of this is the fact that the makers of the Thief series, since they hadn’t completely walled themselves off from the larger culture, actually knew something about film and filmmaking. The lead singer of the band and apparent leader of this youth group is Duane (Duane Coller), who reminds his friends that the Rapture could be coming any minute, and that it’s important to be truly saved in order to ensure that they are not left behind to experience the Tribulation. The filmmakers describe her as a young woman who is “caught up in living for the present with little concern for the future,” but she largely doesn’t care much about anything. What will she choose? Her first role was as Patty Myers in A Thief in the Night (1972). Patty the actress is doing a damn fine job here, but Patty the character is intolerable, which makes sense when you consider the way that Evangelical Christians conceptualize non-belief: from their point of view, the reality that their understanding of the universe is accurate and factual is just so obvious (ignoring that, if the evidence was really so evident, the very concept of faith would be completely meaningless). As someone raised deep, deep in the world of Evangelical Christianity, I can tell you: the people who grow up in or join these churches are fed a doctrine of constancy of ideology that does not align with historical reality. $19 Million Patty Dunning Wiki: Salary, Married, Wedding, Spouse, Family Patty Dunning is an actress, known for A Thief in the Night (1972), A … I’ve seen and reviewed a lot of cheap, shot-for-nothing horror movies from this era (Cathy’s Curse from 1977, Mark of the Witch from 1970, The Love Butcher from 1975, and Abby from 1974 just to name a few), and the production value in A Distant Thunder is equal to or greater than each of these. The sequence is admirably tense***, but an alarm sounds and our heroes give the slip to a UNITE guard who crashes into a stockboy carrying a cardboard box of loose raw meat and then keeps slipping on it for a comically long time. For the footage of massive crowds in which people gather to see the False Prophet, Thompson gives thanks that it just so happened that the Pope was visiting Des Moines in 1979, so he was able to send a second unit to film the crowd; instead of the desired crowd shots of 10,000 people, Doughten says they ended up actually having 600,000 (although this source puts the number of attendees closer to 350,000). It’s been too long since I watched the Left Behind films starring Kirk Cameron to make definitive statements about their quality, but I don’t recall them with any particular fondness and seem to remember them being more banal than a manila folder, while Apocalypse seemed like it was made by someone who had heard of these “moving pictures” but never seen one before. That same layer of seventies earnestness and, believe it or not, inventive filmmaking that made Thief so memorable is on full display here. Pat: https://youtu.be/C3wYHD2ieLo A couple of weeks ago, I explained the Pre-Millenialist Dispensationalist point of view to an acquaintance by drawing a diagram of how Christianity branches into Catholicism and Protestantism, then Protestantism into its various denominations, all the way down to dispensationalism, then millennial dispensationalism, then pre- and post-millennial dispensationalism, but it continues to branch and sect from there, if you can believe it. He’s just not as visible so I’m not including him here.). My Bloody Valentine is a 1981 Canadian slasher film directed by George Mihalka and written by John Beaird.It stars Paul Kelman, Lori Hallier, and Neil Affleck.The plot tells about a group of young adults who decide to throw a Valentine's Day party, only to incur the vengeful wrath of an assailant in mining gear who begins a killing spree. Who knows!) She finally makes her decision, crying out that she will take The Mark, but there’s no one around to hear her. A world away (and far beyond the eye of this film’s camera crew), miracles happen. Yes, I want the Patheos Nonreligious Newsletter as well, Identity Politics vs. Transactional Politics. The Rapture (sort of) happens at the forty minute mark of this seventy minute movie, but it feels a lot longer due to a few overlong plot cul-de- sacs. He became a sovereign citizen sort of whackadoodle and got in a lot of legal trouble. Relentlessly pursued by the evil forces of UNITE, she has a choice. Welcome back, dear readers! Clancy Brown, Actor: The Shawshank Redemption. He died last year, leaving behind his eighth wife and a whole passel of ex-wives and children. The Late, Great Planet Mirth VIII: Image of the Beast (1980). Christians rebel against a totalitarian, computerized society headed by the Antichrist. The film does its best work in these small, intimate moments, like when Wenda and Sandy are taken to an Antichrist medical facility and see a woman begging for someone to feed her baby, but being turned away because she doesn’t have The Mark and refuses to get one. Often in these critiques I talk about the points of view of Doughten and those of, for instance, Left Behind co-authors Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye as if they are interchangeable and immutable, but this isn’t really the case. . The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Russell Doughten, the actor behind Good Pastor and one of the creators of the movie itself, he took comfort and satisfaction from that fact, Thom Rachford has been working infrequently but steadily, a fairly solid and well-established actor, She ended up getting involved in worship ministry, she and her husband, the church’s pastor, retired, Susan Plumb, the actress who played Kathy, physical abuse is becoming way less acceptable, manipulating a child’s trust and innocence, I might have been a little pissed off here. Although I don’t remember the Left Behind books ever outright using the term “age of accountability” in the text (note: this is a link to a discussion of the AoA by a pastor, not an academic source), it is conceptually present as the text explicitly indicates that not only children are children taken in the Rapture, but fetuses as well (Fred Clark discusses some of the existential horror surrounding this spontaneous supernatural abortion in this blog post). Person. She acknowledged in that interview that yes, the movie did traumatize people, but she accepted that as the price that must be paid to “convey the truth.” Sometimes the truth is just that terrifying, I reckon, if one is a fundagelical and has no way whatsoever to critically judge threats. After the opening exposition, they hit the ground running and don’t look back, and the film is worthwhile for it. (I’ve got no idea what became of the boy who played Billy, Kathy’s son in the movie. Get updates from Roll to Disbelieve delivered straight to your inbox. Most of all, we’re way less likely to see the terrorization of children as a good thing no matter what the cause might be. Diane, Jerry, and Sandy (Gasp! So far so good; I mean, if you believe in divine intervention, an appearance by the Pope is as close to living proof of it as you’re going to get, even if you’re not Catholic. She and Sandy are captured by the Antichrist’s forces, UNITE (see the second footnote in the Thief review), but Wenda manages to call Patty and warn her to flee the house. He was an undiscovered actor working for a theater company. He was the epitome of an ideal 1970s man: sensual, graceful (okay, except when running), earthy, in great shape, intelligent, decisive, caring, fashionable, and competent in a lot of different ways. Patty’s love interest Jim (Mike Niday) is a Certified True Believer™, but Patty and her family attend a church with a looser (read, for the sake of this film’s intended audience: a more liberal and less literal and thus not scriptural and in fact heretical) approach to spirituality; her pastor, Matthew Turner (Russell S. Doughten Jr., also a writer on the film) is less fire-and- brimstone and more peace-and- brotherhood, which the Rapture-ready believers watching the film are supposed to recognize as being sinfully misleading. I’m pretty sure that Richard Dawkins himself would have gotten on his knees and said the magic words by now if he had witnessed the Rapture with his own eyes. My favorite of these is Manfred Kober, who stands in front of his own Tribulation map on an easel (it differs from the one in the film only slightly) with a pointer that he stabs at the image hilariously when babbling some heresy about how this verse and that verse were meant to be connected thematically to create a picture of the Tribulation. All of the assembled forces could clearly see him, and they pretty much just let him get away. Maybe he figured they’d made their point well enough already–or maybe there’s an even better explanation for that inaction. I may disagree as to whether or not these movies should exist or if they serve to make the world a better place, but as discussed before, they’re much more heartfelt and valid than the Rapture panic media that followed, and they are at worst pretty harmless, despite some callousness on the part of the producers (more on that in a minute). How were they able to do so? The character’s name is officially Matthew Turner. She witnesses** to him, but is unsuccessful. Patty Dunning Net Worth is $20 Million Mini Biography. It comes through even more clearly in the Left Behind books, which is no surprise given that the aforementioned LaHaye was a card-carrying John Bircher. But what they hope to accomplish by cracking the code of The Mark is left unanswered. Part of this is the result of political changes. And as a metaphor for stubborn ignorance in the face of an obvious and grotesque evil, it is perhaps the most lucid demonstration of modern Evangelical Christianity, if only accidentally. We then smashcut back to the guillotine, with Jerry (Thom Rachford) and Diane Bradford (Maryann Rachford) forcing her to watch. Oct 6, 2016 - Debbe Dunning replaced Pamela Anderson as Tim's Tool Time assistant during the show's 3rd season. After the opening scenes and the earthquake, we spend 30 interminable minutes getting backstory on our new main characters before the exciting stuff picks back up. I wish we’d all been ready! Patty is relentlessly pursued by the forces of U.N.I.T.E., embodied by a single van full of Antichrist cronies, until she is trapped on a bridge and, in attempting to escape, falls to her apparent death in the waters below. She was then featured in the second installment of the thief in the night film series in, A Distant Thunder (1978) as the same character. Aside from Ty Hardin, who was clearly not exactly performing at his best, William Wellman was the most professional and credentialed actor in the whole movie–and he didn’t return to Christian cinema after his brief foray into it. DUNNING: The accent in Japan appears to be more of an accent on self- improvement. )**, and soon it’s binary triple sixes for everybody! It could be the same character and he was captured, or it might just be a goof.

Jim is bitten by a snake at work at one point, requiring a discussion about the fact that there is no antidote, so the hospital is flying in a snake farmer to give a transfusion in the hopes that the antibodies he’s built up will save Jim’s life. Played by Thom Rachford, Jerry “Sideburns” Bradford was the foil to the TRUE CHRISTIAN™ Jim Wright (dubbed “Cowboy Jim” as he wore a cowboy hat in his first scene). Again, this reflects a depth of understanding of human nature and its nuances that the authors of Left Behind could never even pretend to have. A Thief in the Night is a 1972 evangelical Christian film written by Jim Grant, directed and produced by Donald W. Thompson.The film stars Patty Dunning as Patty Myers, the main character and protagonist, along with Thom Rachford, Colleen Niday, and Mike Niday in supporting roles. Who is Patty Dunning? ***** He even has a Tribulation Map that he pulls out and discusses, with a timeline. I know this is a weird aside, but given that just about the only way that Republican politics actually align with true Christian ideals is when it comes to the Pro-Life/Pro-Choice debate, and this is a pretty jarring point of disconnect between two of the big movers and shakers in PMD theology, and both generally agree (in contrast to Catholicism, for instance, which argues that not even the unborn are untouched by Original Sin), it warrants a comment if nothing else. She then would go on to be uncredited in All the King's Horses (1977). That’s a first draft problem, and it becomes clear over the course of this film how rushed it was from conception to completion, in comparison to the others that preceded it.

The man playing the Evangelical pastor who was a guest speaker at Patty’s church pre-Rapture*****, and whose lecture she flashes back upon multiple times, also plays a patient at the aforementioned medical center; the younger Doughten plays a doctor in the background in the same sequence, made obvious by his gravity-defying hair and general hunkiness. You get a Mark of the Beast! Support for queer people just decreased for the first time. We’re in a bad spot, America. As with all of these films, however, there’s still much to criticize. It’s a tiny thing to find so praiseworthy, but demonstrates a level of competence in filmmaking that wasn’t very common for that era even among mainstream wannabe filmmakers, and which would be largely lost by the time Cloud Ten came along and made Apocalypse. Spanish track. Overall, this one is of a lower quality than either Thief in the Night or A Distant Thunder, and it has a lot of problems: obfuscating plotting, bad child acting, a couple of incomprehensible action sequences, and unclear goals for the protagonists. Patty Dunning is from Des Moines.” What a glowing endorsement. One of these witnesses (surprisingly hunky Tim Doughten, son of screenwriter Russell Doughten Jr.) happens to appear to the women during one of their horseback outings, and Wenda accepts receives Christ as her savior. Microchipping your pet in case they get lost or adding an RFID sticker to your remote control is all well and good, but their paranoia about putting a tracking device in your body is well-founded. but not in time. The reason I’ve done a fly-by on the main creators and actors of these movies is because I think it helps to shine a light on exactly how small-potatoes, homegrown, small-stakes, and picayune these movies are. As someone who loves the minutiae of filmmaking, there are also places where I can see the film’s desires butting against its cost, and director Donald W. Thompson shows some real ingenuity in shooting around these monetary limitations to give the Rapture and its follow up events a sense of scale. It’s not just the amateurish acting, the surprising competency of a wet-behind- the-ears cast and crew, or the dated visuals and cinematography: the people making this movie had fun, and you can tell. It seems like a watersports event must have been happening in or around Des Moines at the time that Thief was being shot, because our gaggle of main characters seem to spend an awful lot of time at the lake. They worked. . Except double psych! Directed by Donald W. Thompson. The shortest of these clips is in answer to the question of what happens to children in the Rapture. I wish we’d all been ready!

Susan Plumb, the actress who played Kathy (the single mother with the little boy in the third movie), made a brief jab at acting and then melted out of the industry after 1987. . When UPC creator Joe Woodland died a few years back, Wired published an article indicating that he was still dealing with the fallout from his invention into the new millennium, as there are still those among us convinced that barcodes are prelude to The Mark. ATITN was the very first professional acting role that Rachford ever got (in this 2013 interview, he talks briefly about his pre-ATITN life). We’ve been talking lately about the Christian Rapture movie franchise A Thief in the Night. As a result, the Thief series essentially changes horses midstream, as David becomes the new main character. Evangelical churn begins to look dramatic right around that Millennial age group–and only gets steeper the younger the age cohort is. . From there, she makes her way to the home of her Christian grandmother (Jean Berg? It must have been a treat for the ATITN folks to have a real professional on set for those shoots. Thanks for anything you can spare! And I know that they don’t mean to sound as petty in their commentary as this came across, but I did laugh out loud at this dismissive way that they talked about poor Dunning. *When used in this context, “worldliness” means an investment in the material (and thus sinful, carnal) world, rather than the more common, secular definition meaning “sophisticated.”. Susan Plumb, she came from Hollywood. Never-seen-before color photographs of Seventies porn star Linda Lovelace at the age of 24 will go on show next Monday at the Museum of Sex in New York.. There’s an unconvincing but impressive earthquake scene in which an entire set is shaken apart while Patty runs around it panicking, a legitimately thrilling car chase, and a truly magnificent barn fire, all of which combined probably ate most of the film’s budget. *** Even though modern Evangelicals are the ones most responsible for the election of Trump and they are supposed to see themselves reflected in the character of Wenda, who dutifully accepts her fate as a martyr and never wavers in her faith, Patty is the character that they are most like. Just as physical abuse is becoming way less acceptable, so is manipulating a child’s trust and innocence to sell them something or make them comply with a demand. Murial Hunt? As Patty pulls up to Jenny’s house, we see another “roadblock” manned by uniformed officers, but we only see the sawhorse barrier and the back of the police cruiser, “showing” this other accident solely through implication. in a pre-Rapture supermarket.

Of particular note is virtually everything having to do with the computers, because it makes so little sense. When a pastor starts bellowing about diagrams and Seven Seals and the Tribulation up on a podium, any kid in the audience with a smartphone can double-check what he’s saying and know before the service is ended that everything that pastor just said is false. Immigrants are being seized by I.C.E. But look at how things have worked out for these folks. She then would go on to be uncredited in All the King's Horses (1977). Like Thief before it, A Distant Thunder is a film made as a preaching tool, yes, but one that was crafted with the explicit desire to render spiritual aid; the creators want you, yes you, to be saved now, because what’s coming for you if you don’t is going to be bad fucking news, and they genuinely want you to be saved from that fate. In the church in which I was raised, one was said to have either “accepted Christ” or not. A Distant Thunder is both better and worse than A Thief in the Night. This panic has largely been supplanted in the evangelical consciousness by fear of RFID transmitters,** although there are some corners of the internet in which you can see that there are some people drawing a direct connection between them (at least I think that’s what this person is claiming; I have a hard time reading this without getting a headache). Patty wakes up; it was all a dream. Wenda Shereos, who played Leslie, David’s love interest in Image of the Beast who gets shot and then paralyzed from the waist down, didn’t do much acting after ATITN. When last we left off, Patty (Patty Dunning) was watching her dear friend Wenda lie down beneath the blade of a guillotine at peace with her impending death and reunion with her savior. ** It’s worth noting here that, occasionally, the PMDs and I agree. The “Receive Jesus” track narrated by actress Patty Dunning. Patty Dunning net worth is. But he figured that some 300 million people had seen his first movie, most of them for free through churches and youth groups, and that millions of them had converted to his form of terror-driven Christianity, so he took comfort and satisfaction from that fact at the end of his life. also put stock in the “age of accountability” concept given that Wenda’s 18-month-old was raptured in the last film, but apparently that grace does not extend to the unborn, as Kathy says that she gave birth less than a week after the Rapture. It’s been a while, I know. On Oct. 2, the sheriff’s office announced that Dunning submitted his letter of resignation, which took effect immediately. Bill Wellman came from Hollywood. Thompson mentions that he got a call from a film critic who told him that it was the bloodiest thing she had ever seen in a movie, to which he responds that there’s actually no blood in the scene, which is sort of true: we don’t see any actual gore, but the guillotine’s descending blade is still bloodied from previous executions. When we hear a threat now, we can go find out if it’s based in reality or not. Fundagelicals’ response to their ongoing decline has been to up the frequency and the seriousness of their threats–but there is no sign whatsoever that anybody is listening to them (except those who are still in the pews–and even they’ve got one foot out the door). Live Interview with Patty Dunning as she reveals the impact Jesus Christ has had on her life. Dunning doesn’t mention being married (or still married) in her interviews in the special features that appeared on the Distant Thunder DVD, but I hope that either she and her husband went to therapy or they are no longer together, because it’s pretty extreme to demand that one’s wife stop working on a project after nearly ten years and with a minimal time commitment, especially when that project that is so obviously important to her as this one was to Dunning. Compare him to, for instance, Apocalypse director Peter Gerretsen, who only had two previous films under his belt, both of them apparently religiously themed and whose filmmaking incompetence is almost confrontational.
