The Fighting Preacher (2019)

Willard and Rebecca Bean accept a mission call to serve in Palmyra, New York–the first missionaries to return since the saints left. They use all their assets–boxing, service, love and tenacity to accomplish amazing things. (Description from Living Scriptures)

An interesting fact about Willard Bean that is not mentioned in the movie, is that he knew the scriptures so well that President Heber J. Grant once said, “I know of no man in the church who can quote as much scripture as Willard.”

Disclaimer: At times in the movie, the main character is portrayed as somewhat ‘silly’ and less intelligent than his wife.
