Multiplying Money And Blessings
25 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy, this is the kind of TV show you would never, never see today.....and that is our loss. There are so many profound statements and inspiring scenes in here, I couldn't count them all. It is the kind of old-fashioned, feel-good story with wonderful messages that you used to see in the early days of TV.

Loretta plays Sister Ann, a hospital worker who is used by God to turn 25 cents into $20,000, and in the process a lot of people benefit. An Irishman, "Mr. Flaherty" (J.M. Kerrigan), gets his plaque on a hospital door for his generosity; Mrs. Spencer (Virginia Christine) is able to adopt a baby; a man is saved from making a drastic marriage mistake; another is able to pay his rent.....and more. The quarter keeps increasing through a series of odd events, which could only be described as supernatural.

God is mentioned throughout the half-hour drama and after the story is over, Loretta comes back on the air and reads a verse from Proverbs in the Bible. Can you picture that on TV today?

Older folks will remember Christine as the famous "Mrs. Olson" of coffee commercials. Kerrigan, a Barry Fitzgerald-type with the Irish brogue, acted for 30 years and this was the last role he played. He died four years after this episode.

Overall, this was one of the nicest episodes of a TV show I've ever seen and almost shocking in its reverence to God.
