The Miracle Of Our Lady Of Fatima (1952) Directed By John Brahm ⋅ 1952 ⋅ 102 min
This much-loved movie thoughtfully recreates the 1917 events that brought hope and new religious fervor to war-ravaged world. Three peasant youths see a vision: a woman in a cloud of light offering words of faith and prophecy. They face skepticism and torture — but are soon embraced by faithful masses drawn by the promise of a miracle. Director John Brahm skillfully balances simplicity and spectacle, all powerfully supported by Max Steiner’s soaring score.
