Description
The True Story Of How One Man's Faith Uplifted A Nation

Considered one of the finest films to deal with religion, A Man Called Peter is the compelling story of Scottish minister Peter Marshall, who as a young man, traveled to Washington, D.C. and became the pastor of the church of the Presidents. By the time of his death, he was the chaplain to the Senate and a greatly respected man. Although he was a Presbyterian, the wisdom and sincerity of his sermons appealed to people of all faiths. Featuring outstanding performances by Richard Todd and Jean Peters, A Man Named Peter is also a touching love story, and received an Oscar® nomination for best Cinematography.

    One of my favorite stories, I remember watching this movie as a teenager and being moved to be something better than what I was.. Knowing that a good deal of the story took place within a few miles of where I was living gave it even more reality.

        The Author's Take on the Film

            This film came out in the author, Catherine Marshall's lifetime, and we have her comments on it. She was overall very pleased. She considered that 20th Century Fox gave it a quality and credible handling. She thought Richard Todd did a fine job. She was, however, politely puzzled by the interpretation of herself by the actress, Jean Peters. Apparently, this was not a particularly welcome project for Ms. Peters, who gave no response to the usual functions and support of an actor for their picture, not attending the premier or anything of that nature. She resisted any friendly overtures from Mrs. Marshall while visiting the set during the filming, as the invited guest of the studio. All of this was opposite to the response of Mr. Todd, who was very gracious. Mrs. Marshall knew she had signed away her rights to affect the production, and did not attempt to interfere. Ms. Peters' portrayal was adequate as the young girl in love, but she was quite artificial in the marriage and ministry period. The boy who played the son was more alive and natural. She depicted Mrs. Marshall as either a simpering hanger-on or as sort of a weary worn, martyr type, who doggedly trudged through. If she read the book itself, she certainly missed the spark and proactive quality of the woman she was playing. Having read the book, along with others of Mrs. Marshall, I know that she was most enthusiastic and positive toward her life with Rev. Marshall and life in general. And, she was an active contributor. Her inner strength also won out as she faced her many personal challenges. If you have the interest, you might enjoy reading Catherine Marshall's book by the same name.

                Eloquently expresses the heart of the Christian American. Embodies the vision of our founding fathers for America. Captures authentically the optimism of the 1950's.
