Cipher in the Snow


1973 LDS educational film about a boy who dies because nobody loves him. A real crowd pleaser at my elementary school. I remember wanting to be Cliff Evans (so stylish! such a capacity for sadness!), which probably wasn't the message the Mormons intended. I can still hear the film leader counting down -- three, two, one...BEEP! (There's a clip from the soundtrack in one of the mixes below.)

  2. This time spelt correctly! Lovely typeface in title. I wish I knew what it was.

  3. I like the font too. Not quite sure what it is. The last image looks like a Boards of Canada album cover.

  4. Too weird. I remember being shown this film when I was in grade school. But I didn't recall that it was a BYU production.
