Product Notes

A Spencer Williams Double Feature. The Blood of Jesus (1941) in the rural south of the United States, a godly young woman is accidentally wounded by her unchurched husband. She succumbs to the injuries, whereupon a good angel bids her to journey with him to the Crossroads of Life. Before she can travel far, the devil lures her with the temptations of juke joints and the city. Can she regain the straight and narrow before it's too late? And what is to become of those she left behind? the film was so successful that Spencer Williams was offered a ten-year contract to produce eight more films with his company. Go Down, Death! (1944) a bar owner (Spencer Williams) attempts to discredit the new preacher with whom he is feuding by framing him with a photograph showing him drinking with women with bad reputations. The last five minutes feature the villain's surrealistic trip to hell that smacks of Salvador Dali, Catholic iconography and other medieval influences. Unforgettably weird.
