Product Description

J. Golden Kimball…the very name conjures up salty anecdotes and humorous stories. His straight talk and colorful language have led some to call him the Mormon Mark Twain or Will Rogers. Drawing heavily from the diaries, letters, and speeches of J. Golden Kimball, James Arrington has created a masterful look into the life of this unique LDS leader who has inspired (and entertained) countless Saints throughout the years. J. Golden built faith and hope in the early Saints as he taught them that if he could make it, there was a chance for anybody! As he once stated, "I may not have walked the straight and narrow, but I crossed it as often as I could!" The legendary wit, humor, and warmth of J. Golden are brought to life through Dalin Christiansen’s powerful portrayal of this true LDS folk hero. This one-man show is an hour of entertainment and inspiration you won’t want to miss!

Is it a book, a CD, or a VHS videotape?
By , Submitted on 2015-05-13

The catalog listing doesn't say if this is the CD, the audiocassette, the VHS video, or a book. Therefore, several short reviews of each one.

If this is the audio recording of the one-man play, it's excellent - AND well acted. The cassette had an hour of introduction by Arrington, including audio of J. Golden himself - and Arrington is right: He DID sound like Dudley DoRight. The actor has the voice down without making it irritating.

If this is the CD, it's all the above - minus Arrington's marvelous introduction. The CD suffers for this loss.

If this is the VHS videotape, the material is the same -- but the actor makes the voice blackboard-scratching irritating. The introduction by Arrington is gone.

If this is a book by Arrington -- I haven't seen it.

If I knew which form this is in, I'd probably buy it.
