Trivia

Franz Waxman composed the score for this film. The theme he used when Jane Wyman's character first enters her New York office was used by George Lucas for his first feature film, THX 1138 (1971). The music was heard in the futuristic shopping mall sequence as "elevator music." See more »

A Great Love Story
30 August 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I cannot say enough nice things about this movie, but rather than write about the movie, I will write about my brief meeting with Van Johnson.

Back in 1988, I met Van Johnnson by accident in a restaurant in NYC. I don't know what made me go up to him, but I introduced myself and began a conversation with him.

While Van could have sent me away, he interrupted his meal and told me to sit down. I told him how much I enjoyed the movie and that it was my favorite. He was flattered that someone as young as me liked the movie and also confided that it was his favorite movie as well, going as far to show me the coin from that movie that he continues to wear around his neck. We both left the restaurant at the same time, shook hands and he said it was a pleasure speaking with me.

It was a very special moment for me. The warm and sensitive person he portrays in Miracle in the Rain is an understatement. Van Johnson is more wonderful in person.
