What a wonderful movie, what a great job Richard Todd did in this movie. I would like to thank him. My father knew Peter Marshall, he inspired his life. Been to the church many times.
Richard you are a wonderful man. I use to tell my parents that when I grew up I was going to marry you. I love all your movies but A Man Called Peter is the best. Thank you for giving it to us. Nothing can take the place of the old movies. Wish I could write to you, to say THANK YOU!
