Funny Pittsburgh Movie from 1972

“A Mighty Fortress is Our God” was made by my friend Leo Vale in 1972 when he was 22 years old. This very funny 8mm film tells the bizarre tale of “a wino” who is forced to join the army at gun point.

“A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (is) a brilliantly edited, shot-on-a-shoestring adventure spectacle that re imagines Pittsburgh’s South Side as the site of a holy fortress under attack from an airplane gunner”. - Steven Haines, Pittsburgh Film Kitchen.
