I found this film of Dr. Billy Graham and the crusade he did in Glasgow
in 1955;My parents were at it. I was wondering if anyone had experiences of being at
one of his crusade? I heard they were very dynamic.

I do recall people fainting at his meetings and the publicity at the time was amazing and everyone wanted to be there. I still have very vivid memories even though I would only have been a young lad then. Everyone seemed to be talking about it as a life changing experience, and for some it probably was

Nice experience Doug1.
From what i remember he was quite a charismatic person and was very passionate.
A lot of people who went including my mother and father were moved by his sermons.
His son is now doing his crusades i think.
