55 years ago today - Mar 27, 1967

Germany's magazine DER SPIEGEL reviews the film "Mahlzeiten" calling "a cool, sensible film-the best thus far of the Young German production" The story includes the conversion of the principle characters by Mormon missionaries (played by actual missionaries speaking actual missionary German and using an actual door approach etc. The couple is baptized and "We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet" is sung at the baptismal service." The Church later regrets allowing the missionaries to be used due to bathroom and bedroom scenes that, though tasteful, are somewhat offensive to Salt Lake City sensibilities.
