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
A Man Called Peter - DVD – Robert 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.
A Man Called Peter - DVD – Todd & Kelley B, 01/03/2010
Because I don't like devoting near two hours of my time to just watching a movie, I usually crochet or scrapbook while watching a movie. However, with this movie, I was riveted from the first moment it began and did nothing but watch. All of our children, ages 7 through 11, loved it, as well. We highly recommend.
A Man Called Peter - DVD – Patrick W, 10/12/2009
Although this movie was made in the 1950's, the message is poignantly relevant to our political landscape today. Beyond politics, there is much to be learned from the dramatic conversion and subsequent dedication of Peter Marshal. This movie left me with hope for real change and the eternal truths of God's grace, word and power.
A Man Called Peter - DVD – Diana D, 05/26/2009
This movie is quite good. Our whole family was engaged. There is a story line of Peter Marshall and his wife from when they met through to their child in elementary years. Peter gives several sermons, romances his wife, counsels people, deals with every day trials and more. His wife is also portrayed favorably. It's set in older and conservative times, full color. The acting is good.
A Man Called Peter - DVD – Jo Anne R, 05/11/2009
This was a really good movie. We thought it was about the Apostle Peter, but it is a biography of Peter Marshall, the youngest chaplain ever in Washington, D.C. He had quite the heart for the Gospel. We need more like him in today's world. I recommend it.

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
