55 years ago today - Nov 16, 1967

Following the presentation of the picture [new temple film] [,] Elder Evans stated that this is the first improvement that the committee had attempted to make since the President instructed them 12 years ago to prepare a film for the Swiss Temple, which film is now in use in several of the temples. ... President Brown commented that there is very little change, that the words are the same [and] there are a few modifications and refinements [but] nothing that changes the meaning, the wording[,] or the significance of the film [presentation]. President Brown and President Tanner had reviewed it yesterday and were greatly impressed by it and thought it should be presented to the President for his consideration. President McKay said that he approved it just as it is, and authorization was therefore given for the committee to go forward with the project...
