Storyline

In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Trivia

Angela Clarke was the voice of the Virgin Mary, pitching her voice a bit lower and speaking very slowly. She had done one of the crowd voices in the scene "Let us see the children!", as did Jay Novello. See more »

Goofs

Just before the first vision occurs, Sherry Jackson picks up a little lamb, and holds it all the way through the vision. Frontal shots (from the lady's POV, showing the kids looking up) show her holding an actual lamb. Shots from the rear (showing the three children before the bush with the lady on it) show Sherry holding an obvious wooden or plastic model. See more »

Quotes

Francisco Marto: Don't you believe in God?
Hugo da Silva: Let's just say that God doesn't believe in me.

One of the best religious films of the Fifties
8 May 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Beautiful work by all concerned. Sincere performances by Susan Whitney, Sherry Jackson, Sammy Ogg and veteran character actor Gilbert Roland help tremendously. This will probably be restored by Warner Bros. so be on the lookout for it when released on DVD.
