I loved this movie & would love to find it again. A clean & wholesome movie, by Hallmark productions.

I saw this movie when I was about 8 or 9 years old with my Grandmother where I grew up in New Jersey. It was called ' The Prince of Peace" when I saw it around 1949.I have two pieces of sheet music from the movie. The songs were "Right Under My Nose"& "Down in Oklahoma", both sung by a little girl in the movie. The girl was played by Ginger Prince.
