In London's colorful but seedy Soho, Michael Morgan is working mending the road. He is unhappy, with little hope of finding happiness. Then he meets Julia Gozzi, and "The Miracle" happens.Written by

Soho in the fifties was synonymous with vice protection rackets and gang wars.It wasn't a particularly pleasant place and no comparison with the area today.This is a rather mushy romantic film with good actors such as Ian Bannen trying to cope with a truly atrocious Italian accent.John Gregson plays his usual sort of role,an itinerant labourer who yearns for romance but is afraid to settle down.He is enamoured by Belinda Lee,a beautiful actress who was sadly killed in a car crash.It is difficult to say harsh things about Emeric Pressburger as he was such a talented man.However the responsibility for this tripe must lay on his shoulders alone.
