Benny, a hapless grifter, is thrown off a train after cheating at cards, and into the life of Tanya, a lovely bartender. Tanya has been supporting her husband, a former ballplayer, since his accident, waiting for an insurance settlement that will solve all their financial woes. But when it comes, he refuses to share it with her, claiming with newfound piety that money is the root of all evil. She then enlists the help of Benny to concoct a scheme to get her fair share of the settlement, and he finds one: a local Catholic mission needs money for repairs and Benny decides to create a miracle that will encourage husband Henry to fork over the money - which Benny and Tanya will intercept and share.

I discovered this film in a small theatre in Boston when I was travelling around the USA after doing summer camp. It never had a release here in the UK and I had to wait years for it to appear on DVD. Strangely the brilliant soundtrack (by the Iguanas) turned up in a small movie store in northern England a few years later. I have great memories of watching Lara Flynn Boyle in the film, I remember I watched the Frighteners and spotted Peter Dobson. Was also great to see the lovely Danny Nucci in Titanic a few years later. Isn't it great when you discover a little gem and you enjoy telling your friends about it. Thanks to ebay I now own a copy of this great movie, and no-one I have shared it with has been disappointed.
