A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Unlike many other movies, the crucifixion of Jesus depicted here shows the nails being driven through his wrists rather than his palms. This may also be the only Jesus movie in which his whipping is shown in a sequence which follows by some minutes a sequence showing his crucifixion. See more »
Under normal circumstances, men were tied to the cross, as was the case with the two thieves, but the Romans nailed Jesus to his cross to further humiliate the King of the Jews.

I remember that this movie was specifically singled out as "Dog of the Week" by S & E. They had an absolute disdain for Sunn Classics pictures anyway, and felt that this was a ripoff to people looking for a faith strengthening documentary but instead getting ripped off by an el cheapo con job.
These were the same guys who made a lot of low budget family films that were shown in the "second run" theatres back in the 70's (remember those?). Some were OK, but most were grade z. The blockbusters like Star Wars pretty much killed the market for these at the movie house, but you see a lot of stuff like this in the straight-to-video market these days. I guess they can spend more on the production, less on the distribution...
