| Accepting Christ into Your Life
A strange companion piece to 'All the President's Men' that falls into two halves defined by the presence in supporting roles initially of Jay Robinson as Jewish athiest lawyer David Shapiro, who Colson befriends on the way to the White House; and then Raymond St. Jacques as a streetwise dude who takes Colson under his wing in prison. (Seen today, what Charles W. Colson actually did to be sentenced in 1973 to 1 to 3 in the slammer is far less clear to audiences than it would have seemed forty years ago.)

Directed by eighty year-old veteran Irving Rapper, it strongly resembles one of Billy Graham's World Wide Pictures of the fifties, complete with appropriate music and title song by veteran composer Les Baxter (fresh from 'Switchblade Sisters'), and like the earlier films has a superficially glossy veneer aided by familiar faces in the cast led by Disney regular Dean Jones and the radiant Anne Francis as his wife (in fact Colson's second wife, which the film doesn't tell us).

The Reverend Graham is actually billed eight in the credits on the strength of a brief clip of him addressing one of his crusades at Madison Square Gardens, and as in his fifties films embracing Jesus is depicted as an act of rebellion requiring an uphill path.
