Trivia

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.

It goes beyond religious cant into lunatic aerials of historical and hothouse melodrama...
30 May 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

During Napoleon's war with Spain, a young postulate at a convent near Madrid experiences her first stirrings of romantic love for a passing British Captain; she breaks her vows and runs off to be with him, but instead falls in league with traveling gypsies after her beloved is presumed dead in a rampage by the French. Unbelievable concoction, scripted by Frank Butler from Karl Vollmöller's play, given uncertain treatment by director Irving Rapper. Is this material high camp or serious-minded? At times, it manages to be both, with the addition of some unintentional humor to lighten the load. Stars Carroll Baker and Roger Moore occasionally look bewildered or lost--and they get no help from Rapper, nor from their dialogue. The appropriately large-scaled production includes several set-pieces which are exciting and well-accomplished, though the plot is episodic, and each new chapter is more outlandish than the last. ** from ****
