I am a loss to understand why this movie seems to get totally forgotten and is not up there with other great jane wyman movies, such as magnificent obsession. If you like a good weepy then this is for you.

This item was not advertised as Region 1 only. I was not able to watch it before my son recorded it onto a disc for me. I don't think this is a good service. If an item is for Region 1 only it should say so.

Touching Wartime Romance 30 Mar. 2007
By Bobby Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"I love you as if I'd always known you. I'll be back as if I'd never left you." -- Van Johnson

Jane Wyman is wonderful as a lonely woman brought to life by the unexpected attention of soldier Van Johnson in this tender soaper. Though it doesn't have quite the charm of "The Clock" with Garland and Walker, there is something very real and ultimately moving about this bittersweet story of falliing in love during wartime.

Ruthie (Wyman) lives in New York where she takes care of her heartbroken mother, still shell-shocked years after Ruthie's father called one night to say he was leaving. It has not allowed the sweet Ruthie much of a life outside her job and mother. When she meets a soldier in an elevator named Art (Van Johnson), his warm and friendly manner is just the right medicine for Ruthie, who's never really been noticed.

Johnson really shines in a role tailor-made for his boyish charm. He is lonely too, and masks his need with constant chatter so that Ruthie can't tell him to go away. Art sort of invites himself to dinner and over the next two days they paint a picture of love's transforming magic, which does not always take huge amounts of time. It is a picture painted on a canvas of fresh grass in Central Park, boat races, and a city made for falling in love.

When Art's 153rd is slated to pull out, however, their happiness is interrupted. It is the small touches, such as Ruthie's pride in a story Art gets publised in the paper, and a truck full of soldiers yelling goodbye to Ruthie when Art leaves that make this film rise above its soap opera origins. Ben Hecht's script, based on his own story, doesn't hurt either. A lovely and subtle score by Franz Waxman adds just the right mood to this special film.

Writing Art every day until he can write her back, a letter finally arrives for a lonely Ruthie, waiting for the voice and words which will make her heart live again. To reveal more would be unforgivable to anyone with a romantic heart who hasn't seen this yet. I can only say that a scene in the rain is a poignant moment never forgotten by those who have seen it, either recently or years ago.

A great cast gives Johnson and Wyman the room they need for two lost souls to find each other. Those with a romantic heart will find much to enjoy with this film, finally available on DVD.

Miracle in the Rain 1 Nov. 2006
By R. Scirica-Siegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Wonderful classic tear jerker. The movie is filmed in New York City in the 1940's. Jane Wyman is a spinster who works for a small shoe company. Her life consists of going to work and caring for her insecure mother. Her father left for another woman and the mother never got over it. One rainy day, she meets a soldier, played by Van Johnson. There first date is chaperoned by her best friend, Eileen Hackett. While walking around in the city, they are drawn to an auction. For some strange reason, Jane feels she must buy an old Roman coin. This coin, will be the miracle of the story. After a few dates, they begin to fall in love and he is called off to war. Ladies, make sure you have tissues when watching this movie.

HEARTBREAKER 26 Feb. 2007
By Alan W. Armes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
to call this particular film a 'tearjerker' is an extreme understatement. it is not a 'tearjerker' but a 'heartbreaker'. normally i avoid hokey love stories like the plague. this one is different, however. it doesn't gently tug at the heartstrings but pulls them unmercifully. Wyman gives perhaps the greatest performance of her career, possibly rivaling her performance in "Johnny Belinda" (for which she won the coveted oscar). she is such a cutie. you cannot resist falling in love her with.

as for the DVD, the transfer is excellent and the sound adequate, though on some player you may have to adjust the volume higher than normal.

Pull Out The Kleenex, Honey 12 Mar. 2007
By G.I Gurdjieff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I just love the weepers. You know, the stuff that Bette Davis and Joan Crawford seemed to have a patent on in the early to mid-40's. I am continually telling my like-minded friends that Hollywood stopped making 3+ hanky movies after 1949. (Not a completely true statement on my part, but def. a heart felt one as I really like the oldies the best).

Well, I somewhat reluctantly settled back with this dvd and a bowl of popcorn on a snowy day in Chicago and the flood gates just opened up. I yanked the box of Kleenex out and cried through at least half the movie. As wonderful as Jane Wyman was in Johnny Belinda, I really think this is as good or possibly even better a movie because of her sensitive performance. Wyman just seems to have this innate ability to act with her expressive face. She doesn't need a lot of dialogue or hysteria. Wow, what a scene stealer! As for the other players, Van Johnson delivers his usual stellar performance as the nice, 'gee whiz' sort of young man that he seemingly had the corner on in all the old MGM movies he was in and Eileen Heckert is great as Wyman's friend. Still this is a Wyman movie, no doubt about it.

As for the quality of the print, it was very good. My only question was why did this movie languish in an underground vault (apparently unviewed for so many years)? I have to assume that the powers-that-be knew they were sitting on a gold mine that was just waiting for the advent of home video.

Anyway, make sure you have a full box of Kleenex before you sit down to watch this one so you won't have to stop it midway into the movie.

nicely done, and memorable 14 Feb. 2007
By R. Gorey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When they say, "they don't make 'em like that anymore", this is what they mean, for all the good and the bad that implies. A sincere, beautifully acted and photographed melodrama in the classical style, "Miracle in the Rain" should please fans of these things. Jane Wyman is wonderful, and her prayer scene in St. Patrick's cathedral, after her lover departs, is a gem. That the film wanders for a while and takes too many side roads is forgivable, considering the impact and mysticism of the final scene, which fans will remember fondly and which I won't spoil here. The print on this DVD is fine, and the image crisp and sharp (though it looks as if they've used the Lucille Ball "Mame" filter on all of Wyman's close-ups). Perhaps it's not all you've heard it to be, but still well worth a look for its unabashed sentiment and stylish presentation. Fans of Wyman's other glossy '50's soap operas should seek this out: it gives the same feeling as "All that Heaven Allows".
