Trivia

Warner Brothers had planned to make a movie version of "The Miracle" as early as 1942, with Henry Blanke producing. The 1942 version was supposed to have followed the original play more closely, but the project was scrapped. It was revived in 1952, but was again scrapped, and in 1959, Warners finally released a movie of it. The story was heavily revised, and the time period changed from the Middle Ages to 1810.

An over-the-top costume drama
19 March 1999 | by hessmarySee all my reviews

Since this is my favorite "guilty pleasure" of all time, due its histrionics and sheer cheesiness, I feel a bit uncomfortable being critical. Poor Carroll Baker suffers and suffers, but she's not as pretty as Roger Moore. Then there's Walter Slezak having a good time with his silly part. The plot is one of the most unintentionally funny screen plays ever -- a camp classic. If you are Catholic with a sense of humor, you'll really enjoy it. By all means, watch it once.
