Dr. Peter Marshall? Who was the Chaplain twice to the United States Senate. He maybe best known by his wife's book "A Man Called Peter". Catherine Marshall wrote many books. 1909-1949
The Oscar nominated film was played by Richard Todd

and Jean Peters

Peter Marshall and David Manuel co wrote the book From Sea to Shining Sea and

the Light and The Glory. I am Reading The Light and The Glory: The book has me spell bound about America's founding.
David Manuel was an editor at a major New York publishing house. He heard Peter Marshall speak at the chapel of the Community of Jesus, on Cape Cod where David's family were members. It turned his world upside down.
This is a must read.

I don't think I've seen that film. I loved Richard Todd, he had a gorgeous voice. My favourite film was The Dambusters where he played the part of Guy Gibson. Apparently he was the first choice of Ian Fleming to play James Bond in the first Bond film, Dr No. He wasn't free so it went to Sean Connery and the rest as they say is history.
Sadly Richard Todd died just before Christmas.

I saw this movie many years ago on TV. I have never heard of the books, but would love to read them. Thanks for sharing the info.

I fell in love with Peter Marshall (and Richard Todd) when I saw the movie 'A Man Called Peter'. I cried and cried when he was wheeled away from home to go to the hospital. Great movie, great man.
