Warner Brothers had planned to make a film version of "The Miracle" as early as 1942, with Henry Blanke producing. The 1942 version was supposed to have followed the original play more closely, but the project was scrapped. It was revived in 1952, but was again scrapped, and in 1959, Warners finally released a film of it. The story was heavily revised, and the time period changed from the Middle Ages to 1810. See more
