Is Call To Arms destined to be a movie? It was 1860, that year before the war, when Johnny, a thirty-year-old eligible bachelor from Ohio, traveled to South Carolina to help his uncle run a small plantation and fell in love with Molly, a Southern belle from Charleston. Their plans to marry are abruptly interrupted by her jealous former fiance at the outbreak of the Civil War. Their struggle to return to each others arms is filled with action, adventure, terror, charm, compassion, intrigue, suspense, and unceasing desire. The story has all of the elements one would expect in a movie produced by Mel Gibson, including the plot, character, humor, history, patriotism, passion, romance, and spirituality for which the highly successful actor-producer-director has come to be admired.
