Very cute movie with a pairing of Ray Milland and Ginger Rogers.
I never knew of this film with Ray Milland but came across it on youtube. It is a cute film with a nostalgic pairing of Ray Milland and Ginger Rogers. It centers around a hidden treasure that is hidden deep below a statue of St. Joseph in a small village. Milland is a thief and he is after that and then of course after Rogers who plays a madam in a house of ill repute. They get together and when he finds a prostitute begging the St. Joseph to speak to her and help her with her pregnancy, he speaks and tells her everything will be okay. She goes to the priest to tell him there has been a miracle. Many funny scenes come when every person in the town with a secret ask St. Joseph to forgive them. In the end the statue crumbles revealing a solid gold stake, truly showing a miracle. There are many stars in the movie, which certainly helps it move along. It is just fun to watch Milland and Rogers together again.
