Overview

Like its spiritual predecessor Song of Bernadette, The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima is based on a true story. The year is 1917: the place, Fatima, Portugal. While tending sheep, three farm children Susan Whitney, Sherry Jackson and Sammy Ogg claim to see a vision of the Virgin Mary. The local adults insist that the kids keep quiet about this vision, fearing reprisals from the anti-Catholic Portuguese government. But word gets out, and soon thousand of pilgrims are flocking to Fatima, awaiting the "miracle" that the vision promised to deliver to the three youngsters. And, then, on October 13, 1917, as witnessed by 70,000 pilgrims, the sun mysteriously sunk in the sky and many of those present claimed to have been miraculously cured of their ailments. Thankfully, The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima never stoops to proselytizing. If one believes the story, fine; if one does not, well, facts are facts. Young co-star Sherry Jackson later appeared on TV's Make Room for Daddy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima is often and perhaps inevitably compared to The Song of Bernadette, and it's easy to see why. While Fatima is a good movie, it suffers in comparison with Bernadette. While both films dealt with religious figures and events, Bernadette managed to give complexity and depth to its main character. Fatima is not so fortunate, in part because its main character is a child. Children can certainly be as complicated as any other human, but it's harder to write a complicated child for the screen -- and the number of young actors talented enough to handle a complex role is also rather small. Even given this situation, however, the makers of Fatima could have dug deeper into the adults in the story and how they are affected by this strange story. Instead, the writers have kept the adults shallow and treated their involvement in a fairly obvious way. None of this keeps Fatima from being a good film, for the basic story is one that is guaranteed to keep one's interest, whether one believes it or not. But it does keep Fatima from a much better film. As indicated above, young Susan Whitney, though good, is not quite up to carrying as much of the film as she is asked. Sherry Jackson and Sammy Ogg, however, are quite good, and the adults, especially Gilbert Roland, do very well, even when not given a lot to do. Although Fatima will always appeal more to those who believe in the story and who will therefore be more inclined to overlook its flaws as drama, it still hs enough story to keep even skeptics interested.
