Ray Comfort, the movie's producer, said, "It is encouraging to be able to say that 'Genius' is an 'award-winning' movie because it instantly lifts its credibility. People are more likely to watch a DVD or view it on YouTube."
The movie is based on a book called, The Beatles, God and the Bible by Comfort, who is the best-selling author of more than 70 books. His previous movie www.180movie.com has had more than 3.8 million YouTube views and is based on another book called, Hitler, God and the Bible, which was the first in a series published by World Net Daily. Comfort said that he wept his way through the Holocaust, but that he loved writing about the Beatles. "Many books have been written about the world's most famous rock group, but few people know about their spirituality. I never knew that John Lennon and Paul McCartney met at a church, or that in 1965 all four of the Beatles were atheists. But as they matured in their thinking, each one of them attained a measure of spirituality."
