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.

"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on March 30, 1953 with Susan Whitney reprising her film role. J. Carrol Naish, the uncredited narrator of the film, also appeared on the radio broadcast. He disguised his rich voice and spoke with a heavy accent in order to play Hugo, the role that Gilbert Roland plays in the film. See more »

A copy of this film was given to me as a gift. I would've never thought to have watched this, but all I can say after viewing this is WOW! This film is almost flawless. A great, spiritual story (and a true one), and all the actors are really good, especially the man who plays 'Hugo'. Seek this one out. You won't regret it.
