"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Klute (1971) - Behind the Scenes

This was filmed the year before my conversion in 1972. One scene in the film is shot in a disco I used to frequent in NYC. It was an old church on the west side renamed The Sanctuary. Above the space where the altar had been situated was a fresco of Satan.

  1. I never got to see this film.

    I do, however, love the NYC of the 1970's despite the fact of never having been there.

  2. That's why I think closed churches should be torn down.
