Based on a novel by Lloyd C. Douglas, this Disney production is overly long and not well executed. It is the story of Simon Peter (a miscast Howard Keel), the "fisher of men," who started as a fisherman and became a leader in the Christian movement. Good scenery (San Fernando Valley) with three Academy Award nominations.
