Four Men and a Prayer Overview:

Four Men and a Prayer (1938) was a Adventure - Mystery Film directed by John Ford and produced by Kenneth Macgowan.


Ford follows the four Leigh brothers (Greene, Sanders, Niven, and Henry) as they circle the globe in an effort to clear their name and solve the murder of their beloved father, disgraced military hero Colonel Loring Leigh (Smith). The far-ranging settings and wide spectrum of characters encountered, from London to South America to Egypt to the United States, leave room enough for romance between Young and Greene.
