Unfortunately lost.
6 July 2003 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

THE MIRACLE MAN (1919) is a lost film, all except for a small fragment that was shown in a Paramount "best of" reel. This film has long been considered the major vehicle for the principle stars, Thomas Meighan and Lon Chaney and the segment that survives shows why. The story is about a band of con-men who decide to pull a fast one on a town that believes that their blind priest is a faith healer. All of the crooks end up being cured through miracles of their evil ways and end up doing the opposite of what compelled them to be evil. Chaney's performance in the surviving "healing" scene is quite compelling. I can not recommend this film to anyone since I have not seen it all, but if you do get a chance to see the surviving scene, it's worth a look.
