Trailer: The Next Voice You Hear... (1950)
Over a period of a week the voice of God is heard on radios all over the world.
That voice on the radio, claiming to be God? Must be a prank by a kid on his ham radio. Or maybe it's something by Orson Welles. Or perhaps the Russkies have a secret transmitter. But as occurrences mount worldwide, people become convinced: the voice claiming to be God...is God. The Smiths of suburban Los Angeles -- husband Joe (James Whitmore), wife Mary (future U.S. First Lady Nancy Davis) and son Johnny (Gary Gray) -- find their lives challenged by the mysterious radio encounters in this movie parable directed by William A. Wellman. The Next Voice You Hear... treads where few films go. And it was made "on a low-budget, short-shooting schedule that almost passes for a miracle itself" (Time). via warnerarchive
Synopsis:"Joe Smith, American" lives in a Los Angeles suburb and works at an aircraft plant. One night Joe hears a voice cut in on a radio program: "This is God. I'll be with you for the next few days." It turns out, everyone in the world listening to any radio heard the same thing. More messages come; some people react positively, others negatively.
