Yes, it does. And that's what the narrator says.

The narrator may have read the script wrong.

I agree. Or the same without 'of'.

She does say "more living testament", which is wrong, but "more of a living testament" would be wrong, too, because that would mean that it was already a living testament. "More a living testament" would be right. Her bare form requires a foil.

An example of the bare form is "He was more cowboy than politician." You couldn't say that he was more cowboy than before. He would have to be more of a cowboy than before.

You could also say that he was more a cowboy than a politician. Again, he could not be more a cowboy than before.
