Starring Carroll Baker and Roger Moore.
During the war of 1812, a young nun leaves the convent to search for a series of romantic adventures, and during her journey the statue of the virgin Mary descends from the pedestal and takes the young nun's place until her return.
In Spain's Convent of the Valley of Miraflores stands a symbol of sanctity: a statue of the Madonna. But on one fateful day, the statue becomes more than a symbol. It becomes flesh and blood.
One of the century's most popular stage productions, The Miracle hits the screen with a notable cast. Carroll Baker (Baby Doll, Kindergarten Cop) plays postulant nun Teresa. She forsakes the convent to rejoin the soldier she loves (Roger Moore in a role predating The Saint and James Bond) and falls in love with worldy gypsies headed by Roca (Katina Paixinou) and Flaco (Walter Slezak). During Teresa's adventures, the Madonna miraculously takes her place in the convent. But Teresa's hard road leads to a greater miracle: a changed, repentant life. Directed by Irving Rapper and scored by Elmer Bernstein, The Miracle is a captivating drama and grand spectacle.
