Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Champion of all the cities of the earth is the towering golden city of New York. It looms higher than any town of man before. Within its giant walls and steel sinews are more enterprises, more people, more mystery, and more music than were ever known before. Its windows are like the leaves of a mighty forest, and its streets are filled with wonder. Our story begins on a spring morning in May 1942 as the people of this remarkable city start to live and work another day.

Excellent!
26 July 1999 | by Elizabeth-328See all my reviews

This movie is wonderful! It really sympathizes with those who lost their loved ones during World War II. And Arthur is so friendly and outgoing, that you can't blame Ruth for falling for him. I think the end with the little Roman coin is so sad!

This is a great movie...one of the best! It's definitely my favorite Van Johnson movie. If you've never seen it, you've got to!

Therefore, I give "Miracle in the Rain" a 10 out of 10!!!
