A Man Called Peter

Scots-born, American-trained Presbyterian minister Peter Marshall, who was to gain national prominence as the Chaplain to the US Senate, is the subject of this unstoppably earnest CinemaScope biopic, where faith is unshaken even by a heart attack in the pulpit. The combination of Richard Todd and Hollywood religiosity makes a potent argument for descaling the kettle.
