Somehow manages to be more boring than actual mormon church services.
So I looked up the story of the golden plates out of curiosity. Turns out Joseph put the plates in box, and let people feel it to know it was heavily, but wouldn't let them open it (so God was okay with physical evidence, just not evidence indistinguishable from fraud).
Afterwards, as people kept asking to see the plates, he said he gave them back to the angel. When people called him a liar, he got a couple of close friends to write statements saying they say the plates (so God's command was actually slightly optional when it came to his buddies).
Dum dum dum dum dumb.
Heard your son has some golden plates, better watch out... they're poison.

I hope they ride into Deadwood.
When I toured Temple Square in Salt Lake City recently, my missionary tour guides (yes, plural) made me watch a 30-second clip of something just like this but filmed in the 1980s. It was equally laughable. But I stayed respectful and all that.
I have to find a pirated version of this movie immediately.

They'd probably give it to you free if you asked. Just say you're curious!
Not quite as awesome as the Zanuck version of "Brigham Young", featuring an EXTREMELY young, pre-horror, Vincent Price as Smith.
Movies captivate the common folk, they can't look away from all the vivid photography and beautiful faces. We can make them believe anything. Even believe our religion isn't wacky.
This film has excellent hats.
The advantage of setting a film in the 1830s is the money that usually goes into soundtrack rights can be funneled directly into haberdashery budget.
