Considered one of the finest films to deal with religion, it is also a touching love story.

Richard Todd delivers a thoroughly winning performance as Peter Marshall, the Scottish-born minister who became Chaplain of the U.S. Senate. While still a boy, Peter wants only to go to sea. But as a young man he experiences a profound awakening which leaves him with the unwavering conviction that he has been called upon to do the Lord's work. He completes his religious training in the United States, where he presides over several congregations.

A compelling speaker who believes religion should be fun, Marshall inspires young people to renew their interest in the church, and his ministries prosper. Eventually, he becomes pastor of the prestigious Church of the Presidents, in Washington D.C. and is asked to serve as spiritual guide for the Senate.

Co-starring Jean Peters as Marshall's devoted wife, Catherine, 'A Man Called Peter' is the deeply moving tale of 'a man and his close friendship with God'. This 1955 performance of the book written by (Peter's wife) Catherine Marshall, received an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography.

What a wonderful film, from 1950's Hollywood, when it was ok to tell a story of a man of God and his following of his calling. We need more films like this
5 of 5 Stars! A Man Called Peter - DVDRobert H, 08/29/2011
Great Movie. What a witness. Peter really encouraged all of us & we want to be much more of an onfire witness for the Lord. 'Only 1 life will soon be past. Only whats done for Christ will last.' Conviction is so important; to obey & follow God no matter what. Peter didn't compromise unlike most of the so-called Christians. And the same is true today; there are so very few who give their all for Jesus. Lord help us to follow & obey your ever present call to 'preach the Gospel to every creature'---the duty of each & every Christian. This movie is real thought provoking & good for especially preteens & up.

Geoffrey S: Quote by J.B. Holland: God give us men....Men whome the lust of office does not kill.....Men whome the spoils of office cannot buy...Men who possess opinions and a will...Men who have honor.....Mem who will not lie... Men who can stand before a demagoge, and dame his treacherous flatteries without winking....Tall men, sun crowned....Who live above the fog in public duty.....And in private thinking. Nov 29, 2011
