The Man Who Could Work Miracles1936

  • 3.6
Roland Young stars in H.G. Wells' light-hearted comedy about what happens when some bored celestials decide to give "an ordinary little fellow" the power to work miracles just to see what he will do with it. George, a draper's assistant, is suddenly endowed with the mystical powers. But when he still can't win the love of Ada, he slowly begins to realize that he has omnipotence over everything except the human mind. Soon others become aware of his power and it seems that everyone can think of ways to use his gift to their own advantage. A remarkable film (though the source materials, seemingly derived from a circulating print, are not as remarkable as they could or should be).

This movie brings back fond memories, circa 1952, of sitting on the floor in front of my grandparents' 10 inch black and white Zenith watching this charming and in its way, rather profound chestnut. There are beautiful performances and lovely period special effects.

I love it. It is a classic. It Has moral lesson and needs to be seen by children around the world.

This is a thoroughly engaging allegory about human nature and hope. Funny and thought-provoking.
