This movie is the inspiring true story of Chuck Colson, President Nixon’s Special Counsel member, who wound up in prison following his newly found faith in Jesus Christ. The Watergate scandal is what landed him there but his experiences led him to found Prison Fellowship, a world-wide ministry.
The ever-steady Dean Jones gives a fabulous portrayal as Colson and the rest of the cast, including Anne Francis as Colson’s wife, are excellent as well. The themes of honesty, forgiveness, and loyalty are excellently portrayed in the film.
In one touching scene in the film a friend of Colson’s, a fellow Christian, is going to ask President Ford to allow him to take Colson’s place in prison for his remaining term. This film is engaging and we are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
