How British actors and cinematographers can season a mediocre script.
Verified purchase
For those of us who cannot get enough of this era of film-making, or of the English of yore, or the impeccable acting talents of British actors, this movie works its magic. As a script, it is a reworking of so many in which a man finds himself facing a jury after a series of mishaps. At the dénouement, the viewer is left to reason for himself what happens because the concluding few minutes of the storyline are a complete muddle. Even the newspaper headline, which is supposed to enlighten the viewer, is cut off at the right-hand side where the operative words are printed. The title is no less abstruse than the ending and can only be guessed by applying a metaphor of one's choosing. For this confusion and for all its ordinariness, the noir-style photography, the acting, the brisk pace of it all, makes the film an enjoyable treat.

Great Movie!
Verified purchase
Although I'm a classic movie buff, I didn't remember this movie by title, but remembered seeing it years ago only once. The title threw me off, and I didn't really see it as fitting the plot at all. Nonetheless, I truly enjoyed watching this movie and recommend it to others who appreciate great classics featuring great actors such as Rex Harrison. I'd now like to add it to my enormous collection of B/W classics. Would you please offer the rental of "Miracle in the Rain," featuring Van Johnson and Jane Wyman?

Good in Places, but Uneven
Verified purchase
A rather atmospheric and well-acted movie with some charms, some real bite. BUT it is
very dark, and sometimes the direction was badly paced, and awkward. Altogether not
a bad "evening quick watch" but not one of Rex Harrison's best. Very good Lili Palmer
I must say. . . given the material she had to work with, uneven.

Good Old Scary Movie
Verified purchase
We seniors can't really connect with some of the modern movies, so I have gone back in time to locate the old black and white movies with our favorite stars. Most of the stories were simple but that is what we liked for entertainment. I will watch any movie with Rex Harrison in it because I know it will be good.

Old movie in brilliant black and white. Acting was professional and story is unknown as I did not watch it.
