Movie Info

Peter Marshall was a humble Scot who attributed a narrow brush with death to divine intervention. Convinced that he had been called to the ministry, he emigrated to the United States where he graduated from a seminary to become a successful preacher. Happily married, Marshall and his wife endure her recovery from tuberculosis and his heart attack to see him become Chaplain to the Senate and gain national renown.

Audience Reviews for A Man Called Peter

  • Jul 10, 2010
    Reverent, sometimes corny bio of Peter Marshall is saved by a strong central performance from Richard Todd. The film also has high production values and a good supporting cast including Jean Peters' swan song before marrying Howard Hughes and retiring from acting for over two decades and then emerging to only do a very few appearances on TV.

    its main fault is it has a very slow and dull start. it kicks off when theres about an hour left with a sermon about a dying child. for that last hour ya don't look at the time. it's just a shame it couldn't keep my eyes hooked the rest of the time. very strong performance from richard todd and that's the reason to watch it
