Storyline

In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Trivia

Angela Clarke was the voice of the Virgin Mary, pitching her voice a bit lower and speaking very slowly. She had done one of the crowd voices in the scene "Let us see the children!", as did Jay Novello. See more »

One of the best religious films of the Fifties

Beautiful work by all concerned. Sincere performances by Susan Whitney, Sherry Jackson, Sammy Ogg and veteran character actor Gilbert Roland help tremendously. This will probably be restored by Warner Bros. so be on the lookout for it when released on DVD.
