"BILLY: THE EARLY YEARS"

WORLD WIDE PICTURES

Billy: The Early Years is a 2008 American biographical film, directed by Robby Benson. The film recounts the story of the world renowned evangelist, Billy Graham, played by Armie Hammer, creating a portrayal of Billy’s life from the mid-1930s to the late 1940s when Billy Graham finds himself speaking in his famous Los Angeles crusade. World Wide Pictures, the film distribution and production company that was created by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), did not in any way help with the production of this film. After almost a year and a half of a delayed DVD release, Billy: The Early Years was released on DVD on March 16, 2010.
