Trivia

When, in 1952, the "Il Miracolo" segment of the film was released in the United States as "The Miracle", it was the subject of a legal battle in which the Supreme Court ruled for the first time that motion pictures, like books and newspapers, were protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution.

The Miracle, Censorship and the Supreme Court
30 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Contrary to the previous reviewer, "The Miracle" WAS released in New York City at the Paris Theater in 1950 (it was part of a 2-film anthology called "The Ways of Love"). It did well at the box office and went on to win Best Foreign Film from the NY Film Critics.

Cardinal Spellman objected to the film and denounced it in print. Since the film had already passed the NY censorship board without objection, he put pressure on the owner of the Paris Theater to stop showing the film before he was able to get the censorship board to reverse itself.

The film's distributor, Joseph Burstyn, went to court to defend the film and the Supreme Court, in a landmark ruling in 1952, decided the censorship board had violated the Constitution's separation of church and state clause and, furthermore, reversed its 1915 Mutual Film vs. Ohio ruling and determined that film was protected under the First Amendment.
